Italy World Cup squad is 'homogeneous'

No, this has nothing to do with the metrosexual USA squad. In his diary for MSN, Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon claimed: "Our manager Lippi has taken care to put together a homogeneous side." For anyone who was wondering here is the definition: homogeneous.

I suspect this is another lost in translation moment. No footballer knows a word that long in their own language, let alone somebody else's.
