I hope junior Italians do better in remaining matches if they want to find a place with the Seniors at the FWC next year. I don't care whether they both teams entertain or not as long as they WIN. I prefer Effectiveness to Flamboyance.

Hmmmmmm...I hope Italy play like this when we meet them on Monday, if so, we'll definitely win. Our match with Egypt should have ended 3-3.
