I will point out that the Italians are probably the least diving team at the Euro's. This year.The doctor prescribed it and btw, did you even watch the Italy-Spain game on matchday 3? or were you too busy plucking your eyebrows?
Italy has a stong defense and their diving will drive zee Germans crazy.:crazy:
as much as it pains me to say it, I'm pleasantly surprised to say I'd agree with you. The Germans have also had very little in the way of theatrics.I will point out that the Italians are probably the least diving team at the Euro's. This year.
I think soccer has gotten more technical and tactical then ever before. What we are seeing is the result of this, teams parking the bus or playing so defensively sound with their shape and strategy that the fluidity and entertainment has suffered. In the games I have seen there had been such a lack of really good opportunities unless teams are playing holland who appeared to be the one team with a formation but no shape or structure defensively.It pains me as a Dutchman but I have to cheer for Germany.
And personally I'm not enjoying the football. It's almost becoming like tennis. The men are too technical and really too good for the small space. The women are sloppy make mistakes and score goals. At least this extra time is better.
