Germany in normal time, they'll be too lively and won't let Italy play like England did. They have no fitness excuses either after a decent break.
At the moment the majority vote is for no one gives a shit because Portugal are out
Word in the Herne Hill greengrocers was that Germany have never beaten Italy at football since the war.
Word was wrong. Germany beat Italy in 1994 and 1995 and beat them several times between the war and then.
What is true is that Germany/West Germany have never beaten Italy in a competitive game before.
That sort of statistic is not a good guide. Last time we met spain we won 4-0
I think the Germans will walk this. I can see it being all done and dusted with 30 mins to go
Quite an impressive strike force in the BBC studio - Klinsmann, Lineker, Shearer and Vialli.
That Lineker penalty against Brazil they just showed was awful. He must regret missing that and not tying Bobby Charltons all-time England scoring record.
Germany for me
Germany will be all over Italy, like the 1940s again.
Fascists to beat nazis then lose on penalties to the falange
Gotta be Germany this one. Too powerful for the Italians.
Bollocksmelli put on his arse. Class
Can't believe that no one has voted for Italy in the poll yet. Surely there must be some of their fans here with hope.
That'll spice things up a bit.
Note i voted fascists in normal time before the goal
The pope liked it
Ropey German defence there
That's what the game needed,game on now.
I've closed the poll in case any smart arses try and slip in a late vote.
But you'll end a torno tradition
That goal makes England better than Germany. Hard luck everybody.
That's an impressive stat for Pirlo they just mentioned. Apparently he hasn't lost a league game since December 2010!
Wow. What a goal.
