Italy Vs. Germany, today!

Will the Italian studs run over Jurgen's juggernauts?

Not only will the run over the Germans, but they will then take a huge dive, claim a trip, cliutch their heads or knees, and try and get the opponents sent off!

I love Italy and football, but have no patience with Italian football (not that the Michael Ballack is any better in terms of cheating)

Go Germany!!!
I have been watching the games and so far Germany has been the better team (for the most part). Italy and all those phony dives kill me.

I just wish all of these teams would stop the phony fouls and play the game already!!

I fell asleep on or about the 20th minute and I woke up to the sound of the TV with 6 minutes left in regulation.

Score 0 - 0.

Yawn. I should have set the TV sleep timer on.

Disagree - it has been an exciting game so far. After all don't we often say on this forum the journey is the thing

So far, after the 1st 15 minute extra period, a couple of shots by Italy hit the top part of the goal post and went beyond.

If this was American football, those would easily have been field goals and the game would have been over.

"If this was American football..."

It's not. That's why most of the world watches it. Were it American "football", most of the world would find better things to do with their time.

So interesting - I can think of another "sport" when people complain that it is all over too quickly and wish that things would last longer....

Don't get me wrong. I wasn't complaining. Just comparing.

BTW, is it over yet? Who won?

Sorry wombat. Looks like the Italians have other plans than participate in an irrelevant penalty shootout.

"Who said this game is boring!"

Other than the 4 of us that posted here today? I guess, it's the 296 other regular posters here that didn't participate in our little chat here and decided that their time is better spent doing something else.

But it is a travel forum so would not expect a lot of posts on sport

Still each to their own;
To cruise or not to cruise
To take only carry on or not
To watch soccer or american football
Red or white wine
etc etc

Bravissimo!!!!!
Grosso and Del Piero both placed beautiful goals in the 118 and 120th minute! (In the second overtime!
The crowds in Circo Massimo in Rome are going really wild!
I am watching soccer for the first time this year- what a fantastic game!
The ITalian goalkeeper is aweinspiring!
WOW!
