Italia had a great start and although i am pretty disappointed that Cassano isn't there,the team did very well against USA.

Can't wait for next one.

A lot of people,especially in the media attempted to discredit the Italian victory,pointing out the player deficit of the Americans,but this is just ridiculous.

Next game it against the African champions pale.. dont you get cocky

The Egyption team litterly humilated Brazil in the second half of the last game, we deserved to draw but that last minute 50/50 legal-illegal penalty took it from us.. anyway..

I hope Santon will play, Grosso was absolute desaster and awful against the US.. If Italy is gona win thisgame they should count on the weak areil Egyption defences.. we are awful in defence specially the ones from the set pieces (Brazil scored 2 goals from set peices and a penalty! nothing special).. but Italy is gona have to suffer alittle bit in defence, our attackers seems to be inform, and the talians looked like shit in defence.

Anyway I hope to see a good enjoyable game like the Brazil-Egypt one!

Grosso was one of the better players at the back, and he attacked and defended very well. I don't see anyone calling him a disaster lol.

I don't see how anyone can put Santon over Grosso at this point in time. Santon is a great player, but Grosso is better. Brazil has a worse defense than we do, they had 3 goals scored against them by Egypt. Chiellini was solid too.

That`s ur opinion, it`s ok,. but I saw that more than 90% of the finish passes and corsses from Grosso were all missed or not accurate, he ran all over the field that`s right, but his effort was actully so ineffective, I still see Santon could have done better.

I also see that you cant compare Italy`s game to Brazil`s, Italy played an average 10 players side, Brazil played the 4 years champions of Africa in a his top form.. also Chelleni was not in his best shapes, he was slow hence the unecessary penalty he`s caused.. I think if the US played the 90 minuts without that sent off.. they could have caused Italy some real problems... but that remains my opinion too.

I think Grosso was very accurate in his passes and crosses, and him along with Pirlo and Rossi were some of the best players out there. His effort was highly effective and I think he's better than Santon. You just want Santon playing because you're an Inter fan.

I can and will compare. You seem to be very biased. Brazil played really poorly, and Egypt is in top form? Really? When was the last time they qualified for the world cup? Chiellini was solid... and that penalty was very soft... more like Altidore diving.

No, even if they had Clark on the field, the US would have still lost. They are lucky not to have lost 5-1. They really weren't causing us any major problems. They missed horribly any chances they had.
