    I can understand coming off an injury because your training is hindered.
    Intensity wont be the same? Training on small grounds will never be same as playing intense competitive match. Players not playing for long time will be rusty and tbh few English journalists did say this after the second game. It turns out to be they were correct but few also pointed out keeping Rooney match fit for quarters is equally important, so he should start.

    If you think player wont lack match fitness/sharpness after not playing for over a month, then fine. Lets agree to disagree.

    And why does playing coming from long term injury lack match shareness and fitness? Surely he will have enough training sessions before playing competitive match? So why is it the players takes few games to get back to his full fitness?

    they say on tv that every game for Italy is like an away game in the coutry they play against, severe lack of Italian fans is depressing

    Chiellini is a huge loss, but I still think Azzurri R gonna wipe the floor with England.

    Should be an interesting game though. Both teams are almost equally good, although feels like Italy has been better than expected so far. I still think they will make it.

    Chiellini is a scumbag but Italy's defence won't be the same without him.

    Motta's injured? No way.

    And Pirlo has one tackle guess that's not what he is paid for

    I'm guessing we see:

    Buffon
    Abate Bonucci Barzagli Balzaretti
    Marchisio Pirlo De Rossi
    Nocerino
    Cassano Balotelli

    Abate...eww. I'd expect Maggio and Montolivo to be chosen instead. I kind of want to see how Italy would play with both Cassano and Giovinco beside Balotelli.

    I do not want to see Montolivo. He doesn't have enough quality to cut it at this level.

    Maggio was pretty much useless the first two games as well.

    Giovinco idea is interesting, but it will never happen

    If they want someone to play behind the 2 strikers, I'd rather see Diamanti tbh

    Kinda have mixed feelings.

    As an Inter fan cant see a reason to support Italy seeing that there are no Inter players there.

    But I also still love Motta. and though I hate the guy but still proud that Balo is an original pure Inter project. also I have a soft spot for Di Natalie and Cassano. not to mention that Im sympathizing with our Italian friends on the forum.

    But again I think If Italy won it the jube and bilan fans will due credit to there players and that there was no Inter as a part of this.

    Still got mixed feelings, but guess for the reasons I metionned I think it`s 51% for the English, 49% for the Italian.
