Why not just give credit where credit is due? Italy outplayed Germany plain and simple. They made the most of their FEWER opportunities. They were out played, out coached, and out thought. Balotelli puts the ball in the net, and Gomez puts his shots in the stands. I don't think I hear the announcers say Schweinsteiger's name after the introductions. Balotelli is absolutely a head case, I've watched him since he was in Inter's youth team in 2008 and was brought up to play his first senior game in the Coppa Italia. He's a jerk, but he scores goals, and puts himself in a position to score. He's a bit like Edmundo in the 90's, a great talent and a head case.

He had chances against Spain the first time and wasted them. Let's see if he repeats his mistakes tomorrow, or not.

oh no, Italy definitely outplayed Germany for sure, not taking away from their win. Just wished Germany would have put up a better fight.

and I just hate cocky players haha

Did not expect the result to be such a big margin.
Congratulations to Spain, history in making.

Next, 2014.

Congratulations Espańa!



My brother in law's name is Leo Torres too LOL.

My wife's maiden name is Torres.

Nice they showed the Catalunian flag for a few seconds and one of those Spanish princes looking not amused.

I'd say: VIVA CATALUNYA!

Cheers
Robin

But kudos to Pirlo and Buffon(very professional guy), no kudos to Balotelli!

Congrats to Spain. I think history will look back at these teams the last 4-6 years and call it amongst the greatest national sides ever.
