Rumour going around that I believe to be true is that Laos will be missing some important players for the 2011 WCP Cup tournament. Josh Northey, Chad Anthony and Robbie Mintenko will likely be out for this year's tournament, although I can't say 100% for sure.
Josh Northey and Chad Anthony are apparently both injured and will not be healed up enough in time for games. Both players would be huge assets to any team and their absence will be a major blow to the Laos roster.
Also possibly out is Robbie Mintenko because of university classes. I'm not sure if he'll manage to make it work or not, but if he doesn't then Laos' hard-tackling presence in midfield will become merely a tackling presence.
Laos' chances to repeat just went way down.
