No soccer for Boonen

Davitamon's Nico Mattan organised a soccer game to be held on October 19 in Sint-Eloois-Winkel, with himself and his teammates lining up against some of the Quick.Step squad, including Tom Boonen. Unfortunately, Quick.Step manager Patrick Lefévère had something against the idea, so Mattan needed to reshuffle: instead of Boonen and the likes, Davitamon will now play against members of a Flemish team of well known Flemings, including former soccer players Jean-Marie Pfaff, Carl Huybrechts, Lorenzo Staelens and Claude Verspaill. The new World Champion is nevertheless allowed to kick off the game.
