I've been looking for a thread for this and there isn't one.
Italy look invincible on current form , but 9.4 Turkey is massive, so I am on them for a small stake.
Lay of Italy possibly.
Thoughts anyone?

Apologies to the Lino. Earlier corner wasn't offside as such, player who received the ball was intentionally standing off the pitch so automatically becomes 'offside' no matter the rules of not being offside direct from a corner. hope that clears that up.

The first half was frustrating. Shots going way over; easy shots going wide, crossing abysmal, but there again I did back over 0.5 so I guess that didn't help my mindset.

they might not have a stand out player , but i really was impressed with italy as a team last night, they wanted the ball, and straight away went forward, not sideways, and back , they had intent, and though many shots were off target , i think i read they had 23 shots at goal, , eng probably wont have that all tournament, i thought they had pace , the only place i think is lacking is that top class poacher. i mentioned while 0-0 on here last night that i liked them, and imo should be fav now.
