I seem to remember we had the same thing in the UK many years ago when England wouldn’t qualify for the World Cup but Scotland always did. The number of people claiming some distant step grandfather of Scottish decent from many generations ago….Have I told that my family is originally from Denmark, came to Finland 1720's ?
I favored Italy winning because I think they've been playing weaker than Spain lately, even though they're the team with the better stats. But the few Italian games I've seen this tournament lead me to think England's more deliberate and tactical play style could come out on top. If Denmark are matched against Italy I think Italy might win, because I think the speed and enthusiasm Spain has brought the last couple games are very similar to the way Denmark has played. And we watched Italy withstand that speed and raw enthusiasm pretty well, without flagging, this last match.Glad to see Italy win today because I'm looking forward to watching England stomp them into the ground ... < whistles innocently >
