lucky enough to have seen a lotta games over the weekend:
france-germany 0-0 :
france were toothless without viera & zizu - maybe a quarter/semi final for them
germany were industrious, busy & dynamic, but still toothless in attack - qf/semi again at best
holland-italy 1-3 :
holland are a good young side who were unbeaten in qualifying & tipped to do well in wc
however, italy were truly masterful ! rock-solid defense, lightening counter-attacks, & even good on set plays !
italy look, by far the best team in europe & i can see them winning the wc
