Teams: TIMAO & Selecao Canarinha
Gonna be a tiresome mental game this one.
Italy have the edge in terms of tradition and being at this occasion.
England have a slight edge tactically on the pitch with the donkey Milner.
Milner is a donkey player at this level. Everyone knows that, even his mother. But he is essential in this jigsaw, because England fields him and can dictate the way the team is gonna go.
If he is on the team he can do many functions on the pitch. He can do the dirty work, he can overlap in the right (although poorly). He can be the third man in midfield closing down the middle.
More importantly, when the second half comes and the players are tired, Woy always has a card up his sleeve with Chamberlain (who was poor today) or Walcott (who was also poor). He can always play that card, specially if the Italian manager advances one of his players early (no likely due to Italian traditions etc..)
Anyway, tough game for both teams. Pretty even, Italy have more tradition on this occasion and England have this advantage up the sleeve.
