God the tension nearly killed me!
As much as I'd like to claim this result is all due to our fantastic defence (which did do remarkably well under such pressure - Paston was on fire! ) the Italians lacked any real finishing power. There just wasn't much imagination to their attack. And of course they cheated as much as possible. :rolli: I wish Fallon would keep his friggin elbows down so the Italian backs couldn't desperately throw themselves upon them at every opportunity. I have no illusions though, we weren't that great on attack but definitely improved on the last game. Watch out Paraguay! :workout:
What a bizarre world cup. All the big guns have proven rather inept. No team has totally dominated or played convincingly on a consistant basis. What's to blame? The ball? The altitude? Player arrogance? The vuvuzelas?
