    No, but I expect Pirlo to make a few seeing eye passes for excellent chances. That 30 yard pass he hit to Balotelli earlier was a work of art.

    I change my mind on Gomez about 10 times a game. Sometimes it looks like he doesn't belong on this stage, but then be scores. Just a strange player.

    Pirlo has been one of the best players in the tournament.

    Looks like they're didn't sit on a 1 goal lead. Maybe Germany underestimated them a bit. However, Germany is also capable of scoring 3-4 unanswered goals. There's a lot of game left.

    And right there is why. Cassano not even touched and he stopped the game for 2 minutes.

    That second goal was awesome. Pretty surprised that Italy is basically dominating.

    Re: EURO 2012

    Italy has played great this tournament. Playing some real fluid soccer and deserving of where they are right now.

    I'm glad to see Balotelli playing so well and keeping his head. Not a more talented player in the world than him if he keeps his head on straight.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I didn't think that Italy dominated the first. I thought German controled the game but Italy scored on two of its opportunities.

    The German coach has made a few questionable decisions in this trounament. First it was sitting Gomez and Mueller against Greece and now Mueller against Italy. Germany needs a goal and a quick goal to get back into the game.

    What is the over/under on Italians laying on the ground writhing in pain in the second half? I would say 12.5.

    Re: EURO 2012

    Does anyone understand why Jack Wilshere is in a commercial with Messi and Aguero, two of the worlds best players? It would be like having Dave Concepcion, Barry Larkin, and Kurt Stillwell in the same commercial...

    I haven't watched the whole thing, just seemed like Italy has been more dangerous and obviously has the goals. I wouldn't say it's over, but Italy is about as hard as it gets to come back against.

    True. I have been watching off and on and Italy has had the more dangerous opportunities.

    Something just seems wrong about Germany winning a Euro Cup in Poland....

    Is Reus actually a relative of Jerry Reuss?
