As for England, they will always play with heart but their lack of talent and especially lack of creativity was really exposed by the Italian. Pirlo, despite being one of the oldest players on the field, put on a passing clinic and controlled the game beautifully from the middle of the park. England needs someone to do that, not necessarily a playmaker but someone to control the tempo of the game. Instead, they get the ball forward and either kick it up to one of the strikers and sprint with it full speed.
Wilshere was supposed to be that guy but sucks for england he was injured.
The semi-finals should be really good, especially Germany vs Italy. Not surprisingly, Spain and Germany are huge favourites to advance to the final according to the bookies, with Germany just ahead of Spain to win the title.
I'm gonna go for the underdogs Italy since I don't like any of the other 3 teams lol
