I'm not very interested in this game, it's so obvious that Italy should win it. They have better players, better coach, more tradition, better stats, Italy is only "damaged" because Nesta is missing, but with the way Ukraine's strikers are performing it may not be important.

I believe the best thing Italy can do is to forget the game against U.S.A. that clearly changed their approach to this World Cup and play like they did against Ghana.

I was expecting much more from Ukraine, now they can go home as soon as possible.

Looks like Toni will play alone in attack, with both Perrotta and Camoranesi.

Rather bland first half. Unsurprisingly, Italy look content with their slender lead. Totti and Camo have been the stand-out players so far.

EDIT: Oh and Zambrotta too obviously.

Again dissappointing game by Italy so far. Boring game also. Hope to see much better game in second half.

Javier Zanetti,
Told you guys we didn't need to start with two men upfront? What for, who are we playing? Its Ukraine, c'mon. I thought it would've been Gila who is more mobile, but Toni did well and was finally rewarded.

Perotta has advanced and progressed so much as a player. I absolutely despised this man, but I am slowly beginning to understand and appreciate his qualities.

Camoranesi was always good, but he should've shot more. If I was Lippi I would've taken out Camo ( who had a good game mind you ) and brought in DelPiero. Camoranesi was finding tons of space because of how Ukraine was playing. Even Del Piero could've benefited in this way, because he will shoot more instead of dancing and weaving.

Totti had another good game, but we are yet to see the best of him, which will hopefully be in the final.

People would say the game was boring but for me, I loved how we dominated, but I feel sorry for Ukraine, because they deserved atleast one goal from their efforts, just one though. LOL

Barzagli is good, made some errors I didn't like he needs to work on his heading and timing. He nearly side footed the ball into the net past Buffon, but he's young.........he'll learn.

Germany is gone, if Argentina can score 1, Italy can score 4. Germany is already home.

A pleasant evening ;)

The defense looked shaky sometimes but the attack was flowing, so I'm pretty confident about the clash vs the Germans.

Zambo had a fantastic game, he's so versatile and consistent!
