10 Men Behind the Ball at All Times?

9 Jul

The showpiece kicks off in a little over half an hour… 32 teams whittled down to these two. So many questions…. will Henry turn it on? Will he swandive his way to a WC medal? How negative will the Italians be? Will there be a load of cards?  A sending off?

I’m hopeful the Italians play like they did against Germany, but my fear is they’ll put 10 behind the ball and try and smother the French.
I’m thinking 0-0 here, with the Italians taking it on Penalties.  Either way am expecting a real defensive battle.

    Well, i couldn’t have got that more wrong, eh? Dodgy penalty, stunning equaliser, and a pleasingly open game so far. Lot’s of diving from Zidane (but… he’s Zidane, he doesn’t cheat), Italy looking the better team, but it really could be anybody’s. France look very weak defending corners.

    Definitely not the first half I was expecting.

    Italy have gone to pieces. Looking like France or Penalties now. Arse.

    Well that was just bizarre. Awful way for Zidane to finish. Wonder what the hell the Italian said…

    Yeah, that was just insane. Some proper force behind that, too.

    Disappointing way to finish the game and tourny.

    Back to the golf now Kai? Keep that left arm straight…

    Haha. I’ll get a few more posts out of the WC, I’m sure. Been off the golf lately… too bloody hot here!
