Excellent stuff FK.

On paper Italy surely have a strong squad in this group, but with Cameroon and S Korea I bet they have some promise and the players on these teams will play Italy like its a World Cup final.

From Italy I would say 3 players to watch are Giovinco, Montolivo and Rossi.

Done it in the other thread.

My team would be:

Viviano; De Silvestri, Criscito, Bocchetti, De Ceglie; Nocerino, Marchisio, Montolivo; Giovinco, Rocchi, G. Rossi

but the first team to start will probably include Motta > De Silvestri (or De Ceglie) and Cigarini > Marchisio.

De Silvestri was bad in the last friendly, but surely Motta wont bench him?

My prefered lineup is identical to Deanos (you have good sense in playing with Marchisio ), except that I really like Acquafresca as a prima punta over Rocchi for sure.

I think Rocchi's experience is vital. Captain of Lazio of course and also I am unsure if Acquafresca is better than him at this point. Rocchi is a very hard worker and runs the channels very well... can be useful in making space for Rossi.

Its hard to make a prediction when the amount of players you know from the other 3 teams comes down to....1 in Alexandre Song. Would guess Cameroon would end up second.

And about Rossi, Azzurrini plays a kind of game that relies on a prima punta who is more of an ancor to their plays, Rocchi doesnt really have the similar presence in the box as Qqcuafresca.

2-0 for Italy in half time against Honduras. Both goals at the end of the half.

The usual suspects and magical duo of Giovinco-Rossi scoring. Giovinco opening it up with the goal of the tourno (never mind these two goals being only goals so far ), and Rossi with a pk.

This thread not being updated. Anyway Italy through comfortably, but still need a point v Cameroon to finish top which woul dbe a huge bonus. Not only because we would avoid Brazil in the QF, we would avoid Brazil and Argentina (assuming both finish 1st in their group) until a possible final against either.
