Reading Rec: Italy 0-0 England: Pirlo dictates the game

By Zonal Marking

We’re still waiting for Italy to produce completely convincing display – for all their dominance here, their finishing was dreadful. They’ve only scored one goal from open play in the competition, and have only beaten one side, Ireland, who had already been eliminated. Their possession play is impressive and Pirlo has been one of the competition’s star players, but they’ll surely need to be more ruthless in the final third to win the competition.

Remembering a day when the Azzurri were not as lucky in their penalty kicks. They lost this semi-final match to Argentina (who eventually lost to West Germany). Italy’s opponent in the third place match, England, had also lost their semi-final match on penalties to the Germans. Italy beat England in that match as well, but they managed to do it without extra time/penalties. 

Also-Maldini is 21 here, but he looks EXACTLY the same as when he retired.

I love how yahoo captioned this photo “A United States fan wears a T-shirt showing her support for goalkeeper Hope Solo”. Indeed. 
Hope Solo is quite popular with the ladies.

Robbie Keane, captain of Ireland’s football team, who now plies his trade with the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer, holds up a jersey printed with the words “RIP James Nolan” after scoring against the Vancouver Whitecaps in honour of the Irish fan found drowned in a canal in the Polish city of Bydgoszcz. Nolan had travelled to Poland to support the Men In Green at Euro 2012. He was 21. RIP, James.

In another universe, Michel Platini is that creepy shoe salesman who thinks he’s suave and irresistible. In this universe, he just thinks he’s the only honest man in a game full of cheaters. Clearly, he’s prone to self-delusion in any universe.

No need to imagine the anguish and frustration every OM has felt for the past few weeks. We’ve all looked like this! (Pictured: Valbuena in Coupe de la Ligue after receiving a controversial 2nd yellow for taking an early free kick)
