Italy Beat France To Progress

POPOPOOOOPOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! – ITALY THROUGH TO QUARTER-FINALS

Andrea Pirlo and Daniele De Rossi striked a goal each for the Azzurri to send the Azzurri through to the quarter-finals after seeing off rivals France 2-0. France looked extremely weak and had only a few chances to go. Holland showed their brilliant dominance again as they beat resistent Romania 2-0 in Berne. A break through for the Italians as it all looked finished for them when Romania held them draw and it was all in Holland’s control. Yet there was no doubt that the Azzurri would beat the French today.

De Rossi should take the man of the match having netted a superb free-kick helped by Thierry Henry sending the match beyond doubts. The only possible disappointment would be Luca Toni’s failed chances and the fact that he has not yet opened his scoring account in Austria and Switzerland is somewhat troublesome. 10-men France started the second half on a high but it was all Italy.

A LA MAISON, CHANTED THE FRENCH SUPPORTERS.. Indeed, go Home France

Gattusso and Pirlo will be out of the next match against Spain after both picking up yellow cards against France. Domenech could face the sack while the celebrating Donadoni will remain to guide the Azzurri to victory.

Buffon had his moment to shine again in the match following his penalty save on Mutu, when Benzema’s shot was terrificly saved by the World’s number 1 keeper. Cech was putting in great performances at late but his flop against Turkey showed that he is no all-time great while Buffon is keeping on to show that he nearly never fails. A world class save from Buffon sending Italy on to beat Les Bleus.
