First goal Van Nistelrooy was half a light year offside and the ref must have been in another stadium!

EDIT: I've just realised. Pannucci was out of the field of play HOWEVER the ref hadn't stopped play so technically Pannucci was still

an active player playing Nistelrooy onside even though he was off the field. Opinions differs but I say Van Goal was onside.

It's good to see Italy exeriencing the other side of dodgy ref decisions. *COUGH* WC 2006 Round of 16 Australia Penalty my Foot.

Man Italy were furious. The couldn't complain about the second and thirds goals though. I take back every comment I've ever made

about Wesley Sneijder being over hyped. I thought he was decent. He's spec - blooming - tacular! Wesley Sneijder take a bow.

The two matches in the group of death have completely stuffed my fantasy foootball.I was 1 944 overall which is pretty impressive

but I had four Italian and French players and now I've dropped a fair bit. :( Oh well small price to pay. :) Italy were humiliated.

The French match was pretty in line with expectations upon reflection. Go Romania! :)

P.S. Here is an amusing pic of Domenech looking like an utterly bemused old man baffled by whatever he was seeing unfold in front of him.

no team in the world leaves Cassano and Del Piero out, Italy without ideas, only Pirlo....
I'll say this about Italy. Regardless of Toni's lacklustre performance in National colours Di Natale played well and Pirlo was also impressive. If Del Piero had started alongside Cassano With Camoranesi, Pirlo and maybe even Di Natale playing as a left winger it could have been a different match.

It's unfortunate for Pannucci and Italy but, in my opinion, the ruling that Pannucci was still active is correct.

It's Pannucci & Buffon's fault for crashing into each other. Pannucci wasn't injured and even if he was it was his own teammate.

You couldn't stop the game because of that since the Netherlands were in a scoring position.
