Major major fuck up for Italy ,but they are not strangers to shocks ,both North and South Korea ,Costa Rica have beat them in WC finals .just reading NI were one of the country's which beat them to qualifying in 1958.
Its sad really especially when you think that of the 32 teams making the finals there will be roughly 26 teams worse than them. But that's knock out football. They've had enough group games to secure a spot and didn't do it. Its an understatement how much they will be hurting not just now but when the tournament actually comes around.
They badly missed a Paulo Rossi or an Inzhagi. Because everywhere else they looked solid.
"Hi guys...weekends here again. Hope youve all earned a few quid!!".
I genuinely feel sorry for the Iti supporters they are a football mad nation ( I feel sadness for NI too RZ) the WC has become a bit of a farce I agree H , in pints world I want to see the best possible ,how you do it I just dunno out of the world ranking system Italy Chile,Peru and Holland have missed out . But like I said N and S Korea have both beat Italy in WC finals ,and USA dicked us with John Wayne playing.
Yea Rossi who was shite early in 82 became the top scorer and Insahagl Fergie said ' he was born offside '
I would imagine it will hit financially as well, no tricolour pasta or icky crem required The cosi no studs must be losing their grip.
By the fuck this Eng v Bra is fucking dreadful ,let's hear the pundits big this one up,Eng with all 11 men behind the ball ,Brazil a shadow of even the tram that got dicked 7-1 on their own middlin , Livermore Dier McGuire Bertrand,Lotus Cheek absolute shite ,has any Eng player made a fwd pass ,and Brazil talk about over hyped . ITS A FUCKING FRIENDLY FFS.
