Finally, we got a great match – the last 10 minutes of Italy vs Slovakia. And finally goals from free kicks in this 2010 world cup – the first two Japanese goals against Denmark were just brilliant!
Also a couple of brainy cheeky goals in the Italy and Slovakia match – the last Slovak goal chipped over Marchetti
and then Quagliarella’s goal against the Slovaks
And have anybody realised what a difference a coach makes? We all thought that Cameroon with Samuel Eto’o and Italy would make their mark in history – they did, but not in the way that we expected, or the teams themselves would have liked. It’s time that Paul LeGuen and Marcello Lippi softly and silently vanished away – into club football in India.
