IL 6 FEBBRAIO IL VILLAGGIO AZZURRO FARÀ TAPPA NELLA CITTADINA PUGLIESE (PALASPORT).
We want to hear your football anthem favorite.
Arrivederci Italia. It feels way too soon to bid farewell and continue without you, but it is a sad truth and the World Cup will go on. The game can pretty much be summarized in the thrilling second half, when the Italian's pulled themselves together and their play looked immensely better than the first.
We must begin with the highly anticipated game between Brazil and Ivory Coast. Brazil, with the World Cup's oldest squad (average 29 years), looked several time better than in their last game against North Korea. It was a different team our Les Elephants were facing and it was a game full of energy and passion.
Only two touches inside the penalty box before scoring. Now our football hearts might be slightly inked with Azzurri blue, but think it's safe to say that Paraguay's 1-0 lead came as a surprise. But the great World Champions weren't here to lose, and less than ten minutes into second half, De Rossi showed that he just might be a worthy ancestor of Rome (Totti), and Italy. Despite several chances the result stood tall when the final whistle blew. But biggest setback wasn't the draw for the Italians - longtime hero, Buffon went out in halftime due to a hamstring injury. Really hope it was just precaution and he's fit again soon.
Here is the Hardchorus leader board as it currently stands: The Germans have surpassed the French and lead with 8,785 votes!
