Well who will get to play the Netherlands?
I would love for Italy to play the Netherlands. We owe you one! This is the time for Italy to show that experience and pedigree matter. No excuses. Get the result, go to the next round. If not, we go home because we did not deserve to progress. I am nervous as always but confident that we will fight hard.
Just tuned in, why is Gatusso playing?
The ref. is English, Webb.
Per ESPN game talk, 'To help solidify the mid field', 'was to much flow' in prev. game'
If we leave Hamsik alone in the box again we are in trouble. What a lapse!
If Italy give a goal 1st half, could be trouble.
Italy will win this
if they fail to get a goal after long period I could see them using their secret weapon
I'm almost sure what you mean. There is a English ref. for this game.
The Slovaks appear to be closing down hardcore, not only to break up Italy's rhythm, but also in aims for a quick counter. But in this closing down they are getting sloppy or rather fouling.
how's the game playing out so far, I'm watching the other one?
they're always capable to get it
Italy not quite playing with rhythm due to Slovakia's hunger rate on defense
Man is Chiellini slow? Or is that Slovak just quick as hell...Either way excellent effort by whoever that was for Slovakia.
Gattuso looks hard, acts hard, goes hard into tackles...but then he flops like the rest of them. I swear he goes down way too easy for how strong he is, then goes and berates Howard Webb. He never did that when he was younger.
OMGGGGGGG hahahaha, yesssssss. Great goal for Slovakia.
Slovakia scores! Wow!
Woot there it is!!!
gooooooooooooooooool sloveka.. 1 - 0 lol
slovakia looks so confidence and comfortable
cant believe the italian defender looks so slow and no determination
Vittek 1-0, Slovakia look by far the better team so far honestly.
Italy are in deep deep doo-doo if they keep this passing mess up. At this stage, someone from Italy needs to fire their asses up. They are lacking everything right now. I bet Hamsik is bubbling to get a goal right now.
Agreed. Italy looks slow.
Incredibly careless play by De Rossi on the the goal. I think Buffon might have gotten to the shot.
