Mama mia - Azzurie Win la and the guys at my house
Commie, Mr.Scud led the charge of guys crashing in my house to watch the finals. David came late as usual and it was awesome wiht Angel butting in. We were rooted to the end, as it was an end to end game. I was rooting for the Italians and even wrote it on the wall chart pointed out by Mr.Scud
We had lovely bites to munch thru the night all pot luck tit bit tooo
It was a performance that was all the more remarkable for the pressure that has been exerted on these Italian footballers because of the match-fixing scandal that could end with 13 of them being relegated to Italy's third division.
What a way to mark your 100th cap, by captaining your country to World Cup glory. and they throughly deserve it.
There much was else to admire, from the silk-and-steel midfield combination of Andrea Pirlo and Gennaro Gattuso, to the swashbuckling raids of full-backs Gianluca Zambrotta and Fabio Grosso. It was the Grosso's penalty that sealed victory in the Final.
