Italy is a better team and they proved it. They redeemed themselves from the embarrassment tie against the US in 2006. Italy is just better. The score tells the story.

I am proud of Giuseppe Rossi. He is an inspiration. He is one of the few american born footballers to actually know how to play soccer. He is wise to play for Italy instead of the US. The US national squad just is not good at all. I respect Giuseppi Rossi. US national squad < Italy national squad.

"We eventually got the ball moving well, but the US made it difficult for us. We are team players and we managed to solve our problems as the game progressed, especially after the expulsion of Ricardo Clark. We calmed down in the second half after a nervous start to the game and that was the key to our victory." Marcello Lippi, Italy coach
