Shay Given, Kasper Schmeichel, Stuart Taylor.
Pablo Zabaleta, Javier Garrido, Wayne Bridge, Richard Dunne, Micah Richards, Nedum Onuoha, Shaleum Logan, Ryan McGivern.
Michael Johnson, Stephen Ireland, Martin Petrov, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Kelvin Etuhu, Nigel de Jong, Gareth Barry, Vladimir Weiss.
Valeri Bojinov, Benjani Mwaruwari, Craig Bellamy, Felipe Caicedo, Ched Evans, Roque Santa Cruz, Carlos Tevez.
Arriving separately with massive iPod headphones:
Robinho, Elano Blumer.
The Citizens take on Orlando Pirates in Polokwane at 1400 UK time, and in yet another fan focused move by Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak, the game will be televised on a big screen free outside the stadium as part of this weekend's 'Live From City' event which kicks off on Friday night with the brilliant Doves' free gig for the new shirt's pre order winners.
