Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

What if they do reach the final? How mad will you get?

Pretty mad is my guess.

If you're that ignorant to think they'd get through that tough group you predicted, you're setting yourself up for a fall. I bet you were just as confident going in to the World Cup against Slovakia, New Zealand & Paraguay. If you couldn't even come out of that group you'd more than struggle to escape that one. They might be better now but qualifying tells you nothing. The World Cup told you that.
true, the world cup 2010 was bad for italy but now they are better, you will see. how can all of you be so confident that italy wont qualify for that tough group, you never know. you are so confident that italy wont reach far in the euro, how do you know. but i am confident that italy is one of the favourites to win. but most likely it would be germany with spain as a runner up(unless they face in the quater or semifinal. i doubt england will even reach the semifinal.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

On Italy in 2010 they went into the tournament hoping to defend their way to the final again but they came up against sides like New Zealand and Paraguay who were more than happy to not attack. Italy suffered the same issues England have. They had no plan B. They had no way to turn the side an go and attack. Now they dont have that problem. In the friendlies they have been wokring on 2 new formations. A 3-2-3-2 which was very very attacking. And then vs Uruguay they tried a 4-3-1-2 which switched to a 4-3-2-1 and in both games they created a host of chances they just need to get a striker in form to finish them. Osvaldo is not a centre forward.

Will they win the euro's?? I very much doubt it. But i do believe they have a better chance than us. On sides id put above us id have Germany (who i think will win it), Spain, Holland, Italy and Portugal. If we play any of those 5 i cant see us winning. I also can't see us beating the R.O.I. because the game will mean more to them than us. But this is all hearsay with the way the draw could work we could get a very nice half of the draw and be thinking a semi final is a minimum expectation.

Costa Rica drew with Spain, and Panama beat Costa Rica. Everyone in Europe is just lucky Panama isn't from there.

correct, but what formation could italy use. 4-3-1-2 or 3-2-3-2

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

I only see Germany or Spain winning the Euros, with teams like Holland, France and I'll even put Italy and England needing pretty much a 'perfect' tournament to win it

As for my Croatia, being in Pot 3 sucks, but not winning the qualifying group does that. I am not too confident despite the massive win in Istanbul. If we get a favorable draw then we are a QF team, but realistically, with Bilic in charge, we are a team who will struggle to get out of the groups in a group with strong competition. We had a relatively easy group in 2008 so I expect a hard one this time
