World Class Player
Teams: Juventus, Lebanon, Italy
It's hard to tell who's going to do best in this tournament. Football is rapidly changing now.
I'd love to see France-Italy all over again, granted it would be one helluva nerve-wrecking experience.
I don't know how much confidence I have in Donadoni. The morale of the Italian NT is on a high right now. I like to attribute this change in mentality to them, and of course Donadoni himself. I'll be the first to admit (and my comments are evidence on XT) that I was calling for his head in September 2006. But kudos to him for turning things around. Maybe not too convincingly, however, the job was done. Next step, wait for the draw, and prepare for your opponents.
The next 7 months all depend on player form in the leagues, NT friendlies, the injuries, and then May by the time he makes his final squad-list.
Finally, it's not necessary that they meet in a final...perhaps earlier too!
Don't lament the treachery of time;
long have dogs danced over the carcasses of lions.
Don't suppose that their dancing raises them above their masters;
for dogs remain dogs, and lions remain lions.
Insult me as you wish;
For my silence to the depraved is a response.
It's not that I have no response, but;
A lion does not reply to a dog.
