https://footballfutbolcalciosoccer.blogspot.com/2016/06/euro-2016-preview-group-e-belgium-italy.html After the barnstorming start to the tournament for Italy, as excited as I am based on that performance, I am genuinely concerned for a slip-up. A win against Sweden almost feels like a poisoned chalice, given that combined with a Belgian win will see Italy win the group which could result in an ugly run-in. To be the best you have to beat the best. Sweden, the land of Ibra. I am old enough and have been following football for long enough to remember that ridiculous flick in Euro 2004 ( note: Vieri was on the post and could do nothing to stop it). I also remember the conspiracy theory about the 2-2 draw between them and Denmark which saw a great Italian side which could have had a deeper run in the tournament curtailed. Nothing like a little historical context, believe its the first meeting between the sides since then. Could be wrong - Forza Italia.
