My thoughts on the game:
Italy: If you didn't go into the prevent, perhaps the game would have been over in regular time.
Maybe if you didn't dive so much, the ref wouldn't have been "thinking" about the player diving in the box.
Whine whine whine.,...and to say you would have surely beaten the USA...what makes it such a done deal? I don't see any paper that says Italy is better than everyone and wins all....maybe talent wise the team is better but it is one game and as this world cup has shown...one game can mean anything. Portugal knows about that.
In closing, I have lost all respect for Italian soccer. If they play Brazil, I will route for Brazil to route them...as one of my friends said. Grow up and perhaps you'll get some respect back...
ANyways, happier note...
