Italy have been great so far. Good effort from Espana 2nd half, Buffon was brilliant, yet again. Spain a shadow of their best days though. Don’t feel I saw the champs today yet though. Italy are going to get tired, they’ve had two massive games already just to reach the Qtrs, with another to come.
And they are not the paciest team around. Germany are just getting into their stride and have the game to get goals against Italy. That said, they will have to dominate possession because their defence is dodge. By the way, Conti has been the star performer for me so far, a pure loon!
Everything points to the team emerging from the other side of the draw being fresher in the final than this side. Is there a clear best team? I don’t think so, after today I think it’s any of 5 teams.
