I know this is an Inter forum, but who do you support more, club or country?
For me, I am of 100% Italian ancestry, but I have so much trouble supporting Italia, because they have so many Gobbi and Merda. When "our" only player on the team is Materazzi, a marginal player in the scheme of the Italian game, it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
I become emotional when I see the deep blue of the Azzurri kit, but immediately disgusted at the sight on the names on the back (Cannavaro, Gattuso, etc.) How can I stand for a flag, yet hate those who bear it?
In fact, during national team football, I find myself cheering for the success of individual Inter players. I hope Adriano is the competition's top scorer, and wish his confidence on the national stage translates to success with Inter.
The exclusion of Zanetti and Samuel was even noticed by the dummy American commentators who mentioned it TWICE during the match. If Argentina had those boys in the back, I would cheer for them all the way.
