Nope. The pool isn’t going good. I’ve vastly overestimated the productivity of the offenses. Apart from Sweden’s, whose 5-0 decimation of the poor bulgarians is the finest display of attacking power thus far.
Francesco Totti proved that the distance between global adoration and utter vilification is just a couple of ccs of human spit. Have an Italian jersey with #10 and his name on it, it’ll be a while before I wear it again. Italy as a whole seems to be very much on the whiny side (rough socks is worthy of “excuse of the week”-award). I don’t think that the Kontraband clip of their training methods is totally accurate, but not that off the mark either.
