Also, they need to ban the hell out of those ridiculous horns/vuvuzelas. Part of the reason I love these matches is because the crowd chanting, singing and noise, is wonderful to listen to but this crap just makes the broadcast sound like it's covered in bees.
"Outside the ordered universe is that amorphous blight of nethermost confusion which blasphemes and bubbles at the center of all infinity—the boundless daemon sultan Azathoth, whose name no lips dare speak aloud, and who gnaws hungrily in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time and space amidst the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin monotonous whine of accursed flutes."
. . . and so they did, in style. 4-0. What a thrashing.

And they're right.

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.
