Think everyone knows England got what they deserved today but no point ranting about it.
Italy were not fantastic by any means but should have won easily in normal time. Germany should dispose of them easily but it is Italy...
This is not about "performances in a major tournament", it is about quality
Did you see how technically superior the Italians were?
