Damn, that's really unfortunate. It's a shame to see any key player go out injured that close to the beginning of a major tournament.

Was it not Matrix that done it? I've only seen the video footage once and he was the closest player to Canna when I seen it.

Cannavaro, Babel, Ov. Petre, Coman and possibly Vieira have been struck by injuries. All four teams will miss key players.

Just to think that Itlaia coudl have been with Nesta, Totti and Cana in their starting line up v Holand ... current squad looks about 3 tiems weaker. But on the other hand there is much more desire and hunger to succeed now.

Thats what really worries me.

"I went to a football school 60 miles away from where I lived. I practised 12 hours a day, training both feet so thoroughly, that I no longer know which is better. At Sparta Prague, I would retake the field after a match and train until the floodlights were extinguished."

I honestly haven't seen much of Gamberini to make a judgment on how he is.

I think Donadoni should stick to:

(LB-CB-CB-RB)

Zambrotta-Chiellini-Barzagli-Panucci

But most likely he will choose

Grosso-Panucci-Barzagli-Zambrotta

I'm kinda having a bad feeling about this, all of a sudden...

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.

tactically panucci is fine to play a CB slot. i'm not too concerned because with panucci-barzagli playing in the middle and zambrotta on the right it allows il CT to unleash:



we'll miss the intangibles canna would bring but if italy wasn't facing any adversity heading into the tourney i'd be more concerned frankly.

Gamberini is O.K. but does not rise to the level of Cannavaro or Nesta when these two were in shape.

it sucks to see that players did so much to play at this event just to get injuried a few days before kick off
