Shudder. This may be just the right word to describe the meeting held yesterday between Italy and England , ended with a win on penalties 4-2 for the Blues. An Italy that, till the last, held a tightrope all his fans. More than one hundred minutes of shots on goal that could not shake a granitic England, until the conclusion of the penalty kicks, with the decisive goal marked by diamonds . In Balotelli goals also (much criticized in the immediate social networks), Nocerino and Pirlo , with a spoon acclaimed .
An Italy that has suffered, and was able to do well. A team where the most prominent men have been able to give the best: just think of the parade of Buffon, who stopped the shooting of Cole. At 114 ‘the Blues celebrated, and the enthusiasm is really unanimous, with an affirmation of President Napolitano, who spoke of a’ thrill comparable to that of Berlin 2006 . Some contrast between the first and second time between De Rossi and Balotelli missed, that you saw back because of the excessive length of a football crossato. A small episode in a great evening of football, in which Italy has managed to significantly raise the head after the recent scandals of football betting. Now we go to Warsaw, where on Thursday we will be facing Germany , while the other semi-final between Spain and Portugal will be played the day before in Donetsk.
