I know it feels as if the last one just ended haha.

Why you think Italy will suck....they still got a chance...although I have to say that Ukraine is alot more powerful this year.

I don't follow soccer/football that much, but from what I read here the feelings are that:

"Lippi is a lucky guy. Can't have the same luck as 2006 two times in a row. At least in 2006 we had a great defense. Now everyone is old. We're without game, offense etc etc and our best men are not in the roster."


This is why.

Ya big transition, plus you had a better goalie in '06.

Ukraine added some nice young guns to there roster.

Artem Milevskiy is one of them. Young guy with alot of ambition.

If England will win, will be because of their great defense and their extremely good center field.

He's one of my all time favourite players, but that was pretty bad. Nothing can be done now though, what's done is done.

Yeah, you know the controversy's huge, when it's even being discussed here in America, where soccer is hardly cared about much nor news-worthy. The Irish are pissed.
