    Lol, Fellaini and Witsel start but no Dembele. Wilmots is such a joke of a manager.

    Dembele is up against Nainggolan to be fair, and Fellaini is generally excellent for Belgium.

    Amazing to think Belgium's front 3 could all have been playing together at Chelsea if Mourinho wasn't a knob.

    I rate Nain and Fellaini but Dembele is their best player after De Bruyne.

    And why couldn't he play alongside Nain? They're both excellent defensively and Fellaini gets through a ton of defensive work from 10.

    Reckon this could be the game of the tournament so far. Been an excellent opening half hour.

    Have to say that Italy completely dominating a team with much better individuals bodes well for Chelsea next season.

    Springwatch has been really good, you're clearly missing out.

    Tell you what, I wouldn't mind Arsenal throwing in a cheeky bid for Barzagli. Great player.

    It'll be interesting to see if he tries 3 at the back at Chelsea and whether he can get it to work.

    Apparently he doesn't actually like 3 at the back he's just done it at Juve/Italy because of the players he's had available

    Belgium have been pretty tepid though tbh. They continue to strike me as a group of individuals rather than a proper team, just bereft of any collective strategy. I remember thinking this two years ago during the WC, and wondered if they might have got it together a bit in the intervening period, but so far it seems like it's just more of the same.

    Edit: Not meaning to take anything away from Italy of course - they've been pretty good, and fun to watch too.

    The back three are all world class, but I don't think I can remember the last world-class Italian to leave Italy at their peak.

    Forgot Carrasco is on the bench for Belgium, this is even worse than I thought. De Bruyne played out of position to get Fellaini in at 10 and Carrasco out, that's incredible. The team picks itself and he picks a totally different one.
