Hello,
I have 2 questions

1)If I want to say that I'm not good enough to play in the national team, could I say
I'm not as good to play in the ational team
Or "as" is not used in a correct form?

2) When we use "I was wondering" what tense do we use?
For example if I want to ask somebody if the nex day he has to time to explain something, should I say
a) I was wonderinf if tomorrow you have some time...... or
b) I was wondering if tomorrow you had some time..... or
c) I was wondering if tomorrow will have some time.....
Which one is the most natural (and correct)?

Thanks

You could say it, but it wouldn't sound right. Why don't you just stick with the original utterance?

You might say "i'm not as good as is required to play in the national team" if you want to sound bit silly but more grammatical...but then again you could just practise a little more, get in the team and save yourself the bother...

None of them.
Try "I was wondering if tomorrow you would have some time..."
