No sarcasm at all. We may not always agree, but I like to read your opinions. I agree here. Italy had Verratti and Jorginho bossing, and of course as @Sofabloke mentioned already, their system, their tactics were on point. But lets keep it real, players like Jorginho or Verratti would probably never have even made to this level, if they were born in England [or America]. Despite not being athletic, not having any power or size or strengh, they bossed every team they came up against, besides Spain. Two slow little guys. That is fair!
