    Spain had a legendary run between 2008-2012.

    That team still scares me. They look damn near invincible.

    But it'll still be a fantastic match. I'm just glad Italy made it over this first hump....still don't think these two teams should have met this early.

    He is. Juanfran can make beautiful crosses but Carvajal is a better offensive RB and the best of the post Alves/Lahm generation.

    Good win for Italy. Also confused as to why Insigne isn't a starter.

    Pedro manages to be in the Spain defence for that second goal. Where on earth was Pique?

    I think Italy has a very good chance and it'll be close, I wouldn't be surprised if they won. Germany has basically nothing in terms of defence in the central midfield now that Schweinsteiger's basically not healthy enough to start or play fully well. The organization isn't that great defensively under Low and Muller's been underperforming plus the RB can be exposed regardless of whether it's Kimmich or Howedes.

    The German team is just not fair. I remember in our (USA's) group stage match with them last WC, they just casually brought Mario Götze off the bench in like the 77th minute....

    That is so not fair lol :laugh:

    Total domination was great to see, should have been a lot more as well now on to the classic Italy-Germany!

    Mistake not to have Torres in the squad. Same with Paco Alcacer who played well in the qualifier. Arduriz, Morata and Nolito is awful.

    Euro Cup champs done, World Cup champs next on the block. After that, only the home team French.

    Piece of cake. :sarcasm:

    I swear if Italy emerges from this gauntlet of death and into the finals, there's no stopping them.
