 Italy v Austria
Topic Originator: The One Who Knocks  
Date:   Sat 26 Jun 21:33

Ten minutes to go and its nil.
It appears we have made false idols of the Italians and my tenner will be staying with the bookie. They`ve lacked any sort of imagination thus far.

Nil nil and into extra time. The Italians looked a bit lethargic and had no zip about their play. In many ways they have reverted to type and with their starting eleven they had went more defensively than they did in their impressive group performances. They still might get through however but either Belgium or Portugal won`t fear them as much as they may have done a a day ago.

Austria by far the better team unlucky with the disallowed goal .. but look like they are getting tired so your tenner might be safe towk

Take the lead through Chiesa, surprised he didn`t come on much sooner. Alas my tenner is for them to win the tournament.

2-0 now, but not the performance of a tournament winning team against determined opponents. I did say I thought they peaked too early. I'll be surprised if they get past Belgium or even Portugal if they upset the odds.

Two nil and that should be them through. Hopefully Mancini learns from this and continues to be positive from the get go. No need to play two defensive midfielders in Veratti and Jorginho until you actually have something to defend.

If Chiellini comes back they are much stronger as a side. He doesn`t just defend, he inspires.

Austria are in our WC qualifying group as well as Denmark! They`re not as sharp around the box as the Danes but they`ll be hard to beat too.

Played them once already in the group and managed a two two draw. Still to play them in Austria.

Cheers, TOWK. I`d forgotten about that one - McGinn`s overhead kick to equalise!

Going to be tough to end up top of the mini league between us, Austria and Israel. Nobody is catching the Danes.

Danny Murphy is an absolutely shocking commentator/pundit. Couldn't hide how much he wanted Poland to win.

Awight Pat!

I'm confused, Frank. Italy were playing Austria and Danny Murphy wanted Poland to win? 🤔

I think Murphy is one of the better pundits, lpf, but I realise that, being a Scouser, he will have limited appeal. 🙂

I can handle the fact he played for Liverpool and I don't think he's a bad guy but I agree with Frank and think he's a brutal co-commentator.

Used to think Murphy was one of the better one but this tournament he has been terrible.

Ha - sorry I meant Austria. There was a similar game - Spain/Poland that he was equally is biased and couldn't contain his support for Poland. Spain got a penalty where the player about had his foot taken off by the Polish defender and he was adamant that "these things happen" and "definitely not a penalty".
He has been absolutely awful this tournament- makes Robbie Savage look almost competent

Awight Pat!
