    The [sneaky] Italians should have lost. I hope that more of them keep on falling without any contact with the opponents, feigning a pain-expressive grimace and getting up with an unsuccessful effort conceal a smirk (De Rossi in the first 10 minutes of the game) in these first 3 games so when they genuinely get injured in the knock-out stages, their opponents and referees will automatically assume that they are play-acting.
