I beg to differ Italy had great chances to get back in the game, Cassilis did what buffod did to germany, he saved Spain from Italy equalising... but when Italy went 10 man down that was game over.
Question i have to ask is:
Why did panderlli persist with Mario who only gave 15 minutes effort each game - i would have juatbused him as a impact sub.
Why did he start with Chellini when he was bared fit to play
Why did he sub Motta who was struggling with hamstring injury...
Why didnt he play Diamanti?
Cant take anything away from Spain they took away their usual ref crowding, roll around on the floor, pass pass pass the ball into the back of the net strategy and actually played attacking football
