Your wish has come true Alex.
Odd not having the Italians at the World Cup.

Be warned anyone who happens to be on hols in Italy during World Cup - you may find it difficult to find it shown on tv in bars.
Reminds me when I was touring Europe in 1992. They didn't qualify for Sweden Euros and were in denial that it was taking place. I managed to find a fast food place that had a tiny tv in the corner and watched our 1st match v Denmark I think. No beer & no goals either but numerous coffees!
For our 2nd match I decided to head up to Fiorentina's stadium and found their supporters bar. TVs everywhere but not showing football. After much persuasion barman Giovanni switched over with a grumble. The few locals in there cheered on France, of course, and we sat through another 0-0.
We moved on a few days later and the Eng v Swe match was equally hard to come by. By chance, met a chap from Bristol (gas I recall) who was working in a bar and sorted us out for our final game.
Suffice to say, although things maybe different 25yrs on, the Italians will most definitely be in a right hump over this and with their hand praying gesture will make things difficult. :D

I was in Cephalonia during the last World Cup and was there during the time that both England and Italy went out. It was quite a contrast in a couple of bars in Fiskardo with the England fans laughing in one at the inevitable fact we had had a dismal World Cup and crashed out and the Italians wailing and crying in the one next door that theirs had been equally as dismal!

before we start crowing about the Italians - can we draw Sweden yet again? I'm not sure we'd do any better, remember we haven't beaten any one significant for years despite managing to qualify for the recent tournaments.


I think Gareth Southgate is saying all the right things - trying to get the youngsters in and maybe we ought to go to Russia with a very young squad just as Germany did when they played us off the park

Beautiful country, would recommend you take a trip to the Amalfi coast.

Stay in Sorrento and visit the towns of Positano, Amalfi and Ravello and you might just change your mind both about the country and its occupants
