Totally random, but i didn't want to open a new thread. How is the best way to say "the divine ponytail" in italian? la coda di cavallo divino?
haha Only goal.com could have given Italy 7 pagelle of 6 or higher for that match. Awesome stuff.
Il Divin Codino (play on Dante)
final answer....lock it in?
Totally, unless you really want to say The Tail of a Divine Horse.
seeing as calcio is football, would calciotore follow to be footballer?

Stadion Dynamo im. Valery Lobanovsky — Kyjiv (Kiev)
Emiliano Viviano 6.0 Sure, he kept a clean sheet, but he didn't always look secure. At some of his interventions there was more excitement than there really needed to be.
Domenico Criscito 7.0 A fine performance on the left flank from the Genoa man. He was attentive in defence and also pushed forward when permitted to do so.
Giorgio Chiellini 6.0 Started well but had to raise the white flag in the face of another unfortunate injury.
Daniele Gastaldello 6.5 The Sampdoria man was solid and dependable. Carried out his duties admirably well, with no mistakes to speak of.
Christian Maggio 5.5 Couldn't build at all on his earlier form. Yarmolenko kept him pinned back and as such he had little to do but huff and puff.
Antonio Nocerino 6.5 A showing full of character and drive. It took him a while to find his feet but once he did he broke up Ukrainian play beautifully and also sparked the move that led to Matri's goal.
Riccardo Montolivo 7.0 A rock in midfield defensively and, far more importantly, now the trigger that fires off most Italian attacks. He sets the rhythm and the rest are starting to play along to his beat.
Claudio Marchisio 6.0 As water carrier Marchisio couldn't be faulted. Uninspiring, but then again inspiration wasn't his job.
Alberto Aquilani 5.0 Not suited to the role of playmaker - that much was obvious. When Giovinco replaced him Italy breathed a sigh of relief.
Giuseppe Rossi 6.5 Lived up to his namesake Pablito in the first half with trickery and poise. A forward Italians can really be excited about.
Alberto Gilardino 5.5 One must have expected more of the newly-titled captain. Certainly he worked hard and contributed to the goal, but there is something missing from this player.
Davide Astori 5.5 His second yellow card was a product of maddening inexperience. Very naive and spoiled what was actually a very good performance otherwise, in which he might have earned Prandelli's trust.
Leonardo Bonucci 6.0 A pair of fresh legs that ran well at opponents.
Davide Santon 6.0 Came on the pitch in lieu of Maggio. As usual, Santon was excellent going forward but couldn't find his defensive poise.
Sebastian Giovinco Top of the Match 7.5 His replacing Aquilani was what truly sealed this game for the Azzurri. That back-heel for Matri was beautiful, but even aside from that Giovinco was superb in the attacking phase.
Marco Parolo N/A Didn't have time to contribute.
Alessandro Matri 7.0 Well and truly made the most of his half hour, proving that he is a born predator and also a hard worker - a combination not too often found.
Ukraine 0 - Italy 2
Italy 3 - Estonia 0
Ireland 2 - Italy 0
Italy 2 - Spain 1
