Chelsea have a better team than england and certainly better attackers. They didn't have an excuse if you ask me. England played the same way against inferior oposition to italy and won. Why the big problem cos they went out at QF stage? And eriksons england played well against brazil in the QF of the world cup?
So now Euros = World Cup? Fail.
Didn't understand the sentence , but no need for the melodrama! Yes the two are big tournaments, and the teams that are left in the knockout stages of the european cup are generally pretty good. Italy have won the world cup 4 times. So are you saying 4 times winners of the world cup and regular finalists italy are not to be respected this time because this time its the european championships?
the mention of brazil was because if i remember rightly england were largely outplayed as you might expect throughout that game. Italy are as succesful as brazil I think its 4 wins to 5 in the world cup. So why the spanish inquistion when we get beat by a team thats better ? We may have individuals on higher salaries in ashley cole and rooney but are they so much better than what italy have individually?
