Italy has been the traditional 'spoiler' team of world football. Their success in world cup is mostly based on spoiling the game of their opponents. And meanwhile somehow sneak in a goal or two to win the match. The last world cup was won by the most unimpressive team, which went to great lengths to defend their goal and score the least. The current team does not seem to be any better.
The same way, as we hate the Sound produced by South Africans at Soccer World Cup 2010, the irritation is there in India with Media for concentrating only with Cricket.Only when Indian Media is coming out from Cricket, all other Games/Sports will grow & glow.
That FIFA did not admit barefoot players and that it was the reason for India's non-participation was a myth. Visit Prem Panicker's blog 'Smoke Signals' referring to an article in Sports Illustrated magazine.for a better understanding. It was simply because our football administration did not understand the importance of WC and failed to send team for WC citing lack of practice and disagreements over team selection. Get your facts right.
I watched only Second half of that game. I think it was a good game from Italy in Second half. They created chances and threatened to goal everytime. Paraguay had defended very well. Totally, the match had its standard.
World shd ban SA fr any of future world cups. Current world cup is a nuicence. You just cant hear the commentry while watching the match. Vuvuzu is a stupid thng organisers have allowed 2 b played in stadium. Neighter players nor viewers r satisfied by tht sound.

Its their culture and we have to accept it. They believe by using Vuvuzu all opponents of SA will blown away. Sure sound is anoying but have you ever gone to a stadium in India when cricket is played..
