Boca al lupo

Peroni girl, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

This lady is selling Peroni beer and this is also used to sell Italian football, or the other way round.

I was looking forward to a good match between Ghana and Italy last night and I was not siappointed. Such exciting and attacking football, even from the Italians.

A bit disappointed with Ghana in that although they tackeld and, mostly, passed well, they went to pieces near the Italian goal with some many shots either wide or high, or, if they met their target, too weak. Angola and Ivory Coast did the same.

Anyway, the good news is that Italy showed us great attacking football and good skills, with Totti outstanding in the quality of his passes. There is a chance that Italy may come across Brazil in the next round and I certainly think that they are capable of giving Brazil a good run for their money.

Otherwise, they could se each other in the Final, and what a final that would be!

I would say Forza Italia, but some idiot criminal ex-Prime Minister has stolen that for his own political use. So, I'll just wish them 'boca al lupo'!
