U MAD BRO?
Postiga did that to ENG in Euro 2004.
^ yes and they almost pulled it off.
Pirlo's PK was brilliant, one for the ages. Smooth.
What are you talking about? England looked like a recreational team out there, only decent play was when Italy forgot what a tackle was.
Was out of town so I just watched this, kind of shouted when Cole missed and Buffon saved. Glad England didn't make it any further in this
Again, just barely wrapped up a replay.
De Rossi and Pirlo. LIKE A FREAKING BOSS ALL GAME.
Pirlo's penalty made me break into laughter - such a player.
Balotelli constantly looks like he's on the verge of completely going insane. Maybe that's just his rep speaking louder, but DANG.
Hart's demon faces trying to psych out pk shooters was hilarious.
Gerrard had a good game. So did Lescott and Terry. Everyone else went missing. England is not the footballing power that everyone wants to believe they are, and shouldn't be in the top-10 in the world. Probably even lower than that.
i don't see this happen...
England best players are getting older..
Lampard is 34 (not playing i know), Parker is 31 and Gerrard is 32 and it is showing at the end..
Cole and Terry are also 31 plus..
They need new blood injected now and will be like France left with a generation of average players...
They have a problem in the midfield area in that respect.
And Rooney was barely match fit..
what makes one think that?
Germans have been resting when the other ones were exhausitng each others on the pitch..
They will fresh and rested..
Italy has to score against Germany..
imo, it's possible. they are in great form and play a wonderful tournament.
Germany was playing very well in 2006 and 2010 and 2008 but still Italy and Spain managed to win, so im not at all comfortable about the results based on tournament performances no matter how impressive germany has been.
Sorry, but it was not a very even game. England played Italy even for some stretches but for the most part, especially at the end of regulation, Italy were well on top and would have had a goal were it timed better by a 1/4 step.
As great as Balotelli is, he misses many chances and gets very angry/frustrated with himself and his team-mates.Past results could also be a strong motivator for Germany, as i'm sure they haven't forgotten the 2006 WC. What Italy has is Pirlo who will dictate the pace with his fantastic crosses/passes. Im not saying Germany will definitely win, but it will be a fantastic game and I hope Germany will come out on top.
