I thought Italy were by far the better team in their group match and I believe they will win tonight.
I checked what I wrote so far ...
- Day 3: 4-6-0??!! and Super Mario!
Spain vs Italy: Seriously? Spain playing with no strikers? 4-6-0 formation? No faith with Torres?
Spain 1 Italy 1. Italy was far the better team for me. They should have won. Cassano was superb and Mario? No Super Mario in this match. A petulant Mario? Yes. Spain was seriously lacking. They looked tired and out of ideas. Do they think they can win a third major championship, playing without a striker. Incredibly Torres decided to proof his coach right when he come on as a sub. Nice miss Torres!
- Germany thumped Holland 2-1 and Portugal scraped past Denmark 3-2. Good night of
Some thoughts so far...
Spain. 4-6-0? I see them struggling. How could they start a match without a striker? Torres hasn't the best of season with Chelsea despite winning the Champions League. His confidence level is probably low and here we have the Spanish coach, starting without a striker. What a message sent out to Torres. This is like telling him that Fab is a better option. A midfielder playmaker is better playing a striker than him. And when Torres finally came on as sub, his confidence level is clearly down a couple of notches. What an own goal. I see them struggling.
Germany. They woke up and they looked good. Schweinsteiger was awesome. Really awesome. And Germany now have Super Mario! They now look much stronger than the Spanish.
Italy: I thought Cassano was superb. Credit should also go to Pirlo. I think this team can go far.
