Bookmakers: Italy given runners-up odds

A very popular betting site is offering odds of  6.50 for Italy to lift the European Championship this Summer. According to the bookies, Italy may be beaten by Germany who are poised at 4.75. After winning the World Cup in 2006, all eyes will be on Italy to prove themselves worthy winners and with a young ambitious coach at the helm, it might be slightly trickier to do than it seems.

In reality, odds can give you a clue on paper, but they are only objective. Football in itself is pretty much subjective and any injuries or problems to the team can create a much difficultier situation for Donadoni. He is yet to officially announce his 23-man list yet many are those prompting to unofficially declare them. One is yet to see whether who Donadoni’s calls is ready for action and competition as Italy are in the toughest group, labeled as the Group of Death, having to play against WC Runners-up France, Romania and Holland.
