UEFA - Euro 2012 (Page 5)
PRINCESS LOUISE: By 4:35edt we will hear the final whistle signaling the end of Euro2012 with a 2-0 win for Italy. Three weeks after it started it will end. Happy Canada Day
Comrade_: How can you call it bad luck and personal insecurities?
C'mon, Spain played the best they've played in the entire tournament, finally they made use of their possession and not turn it into a bore. Italy didn't play crap either, they played good on their level. Spain deserved that win. They are both good teams..Spain came out the rightful victors today.
Run Natalia: Okay, I agree but it's still bad luck what just happened. I mean, Motta literally destroyed Italy's chances to fight for a draw, even then I've seen better from Italy, that's why I think the whole team didn't believe they were capable enough to win, being the case they're new as a squad and they are just gaining experience as a new team, that against Spain which has 5, 6? years knowing each other pretty well
Otherwise, yeh, they deserved it for now..let's see what's up in the "COPA CONFEDERACIONES 2013"
lavendar_star: The Italian manager put on the substitutions too early and Spain played great and have made football history.
ZEITGEIST MARIUS: bad luck?i can say the same about germany,i can say this.if reuse and klose were played from the 1 minute they would won
let s avoid the excuses
Sash Ria: Excuses can almost pass if a game is a close one, but not in this one, Italy were by far the weaker team, nothing to do with bad luck...Spain have excelled throughout this competition, it was by no means a fluke/
ZEITGEIST MARIUS: yes you are right.we can find a lot of excuses,but spain was better at all the levels
i hope to see Ireland up at 2014 wc
Run Natalia: Im not making excuses, i'm just explaning a fact that affects the final outcome of the match
I'm not saying Spain isn't good, they're great but Italy's just starting a new whole process of changes, i believe we'll see that in brazil 2014, Prandelli is leading them to be the best they can be..and for now, i haven't seen the best of italy yet
By the way, Germany actually deserved to be in the final, but in Spain's place
No, seriously, German team is pfft..i'm amazed by their fast attacks , i don't think it was fair for them to end up in the semifinals, but that's football!
Sash Ria: Hahaa, me too Marius, you know though if this was a comp of spirit and not skill Ireland would have taken it this year
ZEITGEIST MARIUS: Italy lost the game from 1 minute because they said this:we defeated germany.nobody can stop us..
the teams which defeated germany start to dream a little lol because germany is defeated very hard and very rarely since 2006 till now only 2 teams defeated germany.italy in 2006.spain in 2008 spain in 2010 ad italy now in 2012
Comrade_: Italy played fine against Germany, was that a fault of the new whole process too?
Germany plays a different style though.
Run Natalia: Don't think so, there isn't such team as the peruvian one to give the whole heart and soul and still be last in our qualifying tournamend for Brazil 2014
ZEITGEIST MARIUS: yes Sash Ria well i hope italy vs ireland wasnt an arranged match
i liked the supporters of Ireland after the competition.they sang and that was cool
ZEITGEIST MARIUS: Natalia that s the life.sometimes the game is not won by the powerful team.and germany is.because since 1950 they are always up
they are having a complex with italy because germans always were defeated by italia
i hope to see in 2014 the most wonderful match ever. Brazil vs Germany
lavendar_star: That's true and you had the happiest fan Sasa, which Roy Keane criticised misery guts.
I think Germany were great too but every game counts, Spain got lucky in their semi finals but they came alive in the last 30 mins, Italy just could not handle them when Spain took it 100% they won by the largest margin ever in Euro football.
Run Natalia: I know, its a different style..Germany is actually (for me) the best team but they have flaws i can't seem to get and Italy winning them the other day was a proof Italians have the thing required to be in the final..and i think its attitude and yes, good luck italians have luck on their sides, but now..man what happened
injured players! this was a revenge of destiny I guess..
ZEITGEIST MARIUS: Germany played better in the match with Italy.did you see Manuel Neuer in the last minutes? i thought he is a defended not a goalkeeper
