    Barzagli's about 80, isn't he? Bit of a stretch to say he's at his peak.

    I think this season was probably his best. Late bloomer.

    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.

    Barzagli has been really good for years. Probably better now than he ever has been previously, but it's weird how he's only recently been getting mainstream recognition.

    Zambrotta at Barcelona is probably the serious answer.

    Thiago Motta being Italy's number 10 is depressing.

    Third stoppage time goal I've seen and third time the game has ended virtually dead on the 'minimum stoppage time' (which has been 3 minutes every time).

    Ooft. What a counter.

    What a very Italian performance, kept Belgium completely at arms length. Aside from France I reckon that's easily been the most impressive performance of the tournament so far.

    Yeah, great job Italy. Great performance. Belgium really pedestrian.

    For once I agree with the BBC pundits entirely. One side played like a team, the other just played like a bunch of headless chickens. Very disappointing really - was hoping Belgium might really be good.

    Also, one other selection that hasn't really been commented on, Alderweireld and Vertonghen being split up to accomodate Vermaelen. Lolsy.

    Italy are the best side I've seen so far. Solid in defence, dynamic going forward, and Pelle led the line superbly. Candreva and Giaccherini are absolute workhorses in midfield, and you'll do well to get past Buffon in goal. Didn't come in with any hype at all, but they look solid. Not sure they'll win it, but been the most impressive side so far. Florenzi, El Shaarawy and Immobile on the bench as well, they've got decent depth.
