    Italy always gets into second stage. That being said, they aren't going to do any damage looking how they look. They are on the better side of average with this squad.

    Yeah, they need to reconfigure their starting line up and formation. There is young blood on the pine right now. But I also wouldn't put too much into one game. They looked plenty good against England. And England played a solid match. We will see what happens. Powerhouses don't give up with out a fight.

    And man, England claims to have the best soccer in the world, and these fools cant NEVER get outta any rounds in the WC. They are freaking terrible.

    England is a shadow of their former selves.

    I think Italy really needs to try and work in some new life in the midfield. Defensively, solid. Buffon, despite his slip up, runs that team. Hell he runs any team. Dude is a genius. Doesn't change the lack of small ball they are playing.

    Chile played MEAN small ball midfield against Spain the other day. Made them look like children.

    Expect to see the same, but amplified, by Argentina. Only team IMO Argentina is going to have a hell of a time against is Germany. Sheer size alone, they won't win a single ball midfield. Germany plays a smart zone defense from the half and back. I love watching their defense work, engineered for lack of better terminology. Nothing organic about their style, very mechanical and perfect. Total opposite of Argentina. I love clashing styles like that. Finesse vs factory.

    Yeah, hopefully they will both advance far enough for us to see that matchup. That would be sweet for sure. Germany is one of the most technical squads out there. And they are relentless in their attacks.

    It's not even a game.

    This looks like a bad scrimmage of children vs adults.
