    Watched the second half. Reminded me of Wales v Ireland - not enough guile to break down an ordinary team putting a shift in. Poor Italy team at the moment on that evidence.

    They’re not the only ones but Italians (and Argentinians) do tend to roll around on the floor feigning agony after the slightest of physical contact. Perhaps it’ll be nice to have a bit less of that this time.

    :(

    Always loved Italy, likely because of 82, the first world cup I saw, and then such moments as beating Germany in 06 and players like Baggio, Schillachi, Pirlo, Baresi, Zambrotta...etc. And no Buffon at the world cup next year

    I've never had quite the same affection for Italy as many others clearly do, perhaps partly because I didn't see '82.

    First one I properly watched was '94, when they had the temerity to hold Brazil to a drab 0-0 in the final. Bastards.

    I don’t normally blame a ref. But wtf do you need to do to get penalised?

    Rossi in 82, also the first WC I properly remember. They were poor tonight but might have improved for the finals. Sweden won't - that's as good as they'll get - so disappointed on that level. I want the big teams there - at least Argentina scraped through.

    Also missing Cameroon, current ACON champions.

    Almost had no Argentina either.

    You mean one of all-time great defensive performances (Baresi nullifying Romario)?

    Reigning African and South American champions not there. Chile are a miss - really enjoyed them last time.

    Good.

    Fuck the Italians.

    I've never seen them play exciting football in my entire life. (I'm 35 so I know not of this 82 team you speak of.)

    While I may appreciate that now, 10-year old me gave not a fuck about defensive performances and wanted Bebeto to go on a rout.

    Although I have long harboured a desire to run around the pitch shouting "TARDELLI!!!" after scoring :oops:

    The39thStep Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbour?

    The only team I have seen in the playoffs that looks remotely decent has been Croatia

    Italy were brilliant in 1990 and 2006 and very good in 1994.
