    Messi > Iniesta > Xavi > Ronaldo.

    At least, that's according to the rankings of goal.com

    Grosso is ALWAYS awesome for the Azzurri. Plus, do you remember that time when he destroyed Germany in Dortmund, where Germany had never lost?

    Man, you have no idea (I'm sure you do actually) how much that goal meant to me. I was literally shitting fucking brix after the phantom penalty was called in the first ten minutes... I really thought Italy was going to get screwed by the refs yet again. Of course, Materazzi ties it, and then we get a 100% legit goal (Toni) called off for a phantom offside later in the match. Still, you cannot possibly argue that Grosso's goal against Germany and then his World Cup winning P.K. against France were not the best of the tournament for us.

    Cas, Germany hasn't won anything in 90% of this board's lifetime, so I wouldn't want to look backward if I were you either. Italy is the worst at his been in a long time, but we'll be very good in 2012, IMHO. There is a shit ton of quality/young Italian talent that is being ignored by senile ol' Lippi.

    so 90% of the board is <13 eh

    im not saying italy wont rebound, but germany harvested the stimulus that 2006 gave its greater soccer psyche almost perfectly and has been upswinging at a constant pace since that overachievement.

    You think more than 10% of this board is over the age of 13? Only faggits count that stupid tournament anyway, IMVHO.

    I do think Germany took a lot a way from their performance in 2006. The fact that Argentina sucks ass has to have Germany, Spain, and Brazil licking their chops (Brazil would have destroyed Argentina anyway, so they actually don't care). The World Cup is so fucking weird, though. I'd almost rather have no one thinking you're going to win than going in under the radar. Every time I've seen the tournament, Italy was one of the two or three favorites, and we failed constantly until 2006, when we weren't a favorite.

    How convenient for an Italian to belittle the Euros.

    I felt Argentina's 2006 team was way overrated. Too much triangle passing in the middle third, not enough actual danger or scoring ability. If you put Messi now on that team then, they win going away. But they didn't have a serious attacking player. I don't think there's a favorite for 2010 like Brasil was in 06 or France in 02 (both of whom abided by your theory and fell completely on their faces), but there's certainly a tier. If Spain, Germany, or Brasil don't win I'll be pretty shocked.

    in before "omf what about the dutch, such beautiful soccer :jizz:"
