    Default Best game of the World Cup.

    Last night, Germany v Italy.
    A credit to both countries and the officials.

    Yes, what an enthralling game that the Italians deservedly won because they were the better side and a big up to the ref who let the game flow, did'nt start flashing cards until they were deserved and would'nt be conned by any play acting. I think the ref knew this was his last game in the tournament and decided to ref the game with a big dollop of common sense rather than by any FIFA diktat.
    Also both sides were technically excellent but the Italian defence and midfield gave a masterclass in how to turn defence into attack that should be compulsory viewing for the England squad
    Now all I want is an Italy v France final controlled by the same ref

    I agree with what you say and hope its a France/Italy final. If Henry is playing well it could be brilliant.
    Talking about refs........


    I think he has been the best in modern times.
