Having said that ref wise we have never had a decisive call in our favour if memory dosen't prove me wrong, to which just as an examplem may I list Zola's sending off vs Nigeria in 94, Apolloni's red vs the Czeck Republic in 96, Cannavaroìs broken eyebrow due to elbowing vs France in 1998, Zambroota's Red vs Holland in 2000, the 5 disallowed goals plus Moreno during WC 2002 and least and not last, even though uninfluencial Cassano's dissalowed goal vs Bulgaria in EC 2004, in unfortunately recalling that we lost a WC off penalties vs Brazil back in 1994 :depress: a semifinal vs Argentina back in 1990 :doh: a QF vs France, again on penalties :frustrat: and possibly due to the fact that we played almost the entire game one man down vs Holland, we eventually collapsed due to fatigue in the dieing moments of the game, again vs France, in the EC 2000 Final, after leading 1-0 with DP missing 2 indeed comfortable sitters :frustrat: as Baggio was injured for the WC 1994 final, as a missed penalty by Zola denied us a needed win vs Germany during EC 1996, as Baggio shot was just 4 cm away 3 minutes from time vs France in 1998, as two 40 meters shots, miss-judged by Zoff, denied us the WC final back in 1978, after having beaten the Argentinian team 1-0 on their own turf, in recalling that Massaro shot vs Brazil in the WC final 4 minutes from time that could have sealed the game. Now we'll also probably play the WC without an indeed in-form Totti. :veiled:
What next :frustrat:

Lady Luck ows us :hopefull:

Forza Azzurri :heart:

It owes us big time! I just hope for no more big injuries esp. to Pirlo, Nesta or Cannavaro

How about that blatant handball by Costacurta in the penalty area in WC 94 semifinal against us?

But apart from that, you really've been quite unlucky, it's about time for the luck to turn in your favour.

Yes this is the truth!! I remember it like it was yesterday!!

Anyways, Italia seems to leave big tournaments always in the "top dramatic" ways, like our top player wasting the 5th penalty in the final, penalties hitting the bar, Golden goals with Totti given a red card, 2 other teams arranging a 2-2 result just to kick us out..etc, i wish the drama will stop soon!!

Is there not some saying that goes "winners create their own luck"? If that's true, it may be a good idea rather than hoping for something that seemingly isn't about to happen.
