I have to say I'm baffled that Italy have done what they have done. After the mess that they went through with Domenico Criscito getting kicked out of the team before the tournament started because of match fixing, I was sure the team would implode -- add to that an ageing squad and an unpredictable forward, I'm shocked they've gotten to the final.
Having said that, Pirlo has been an absolute master class. Buffon has been out of this world and the team have defending like lions. You still never know what you're gonna get with Mario, but if he can keep his head on for the final who knows what can happen.
....Enjoy the final guys, I wish it was us!!! :)
