    What about that penalty kicking... and after hearing the commentators go on and on and on about how the Italians will do anything to avoid penalty kicks.

    Great game (apart from that one incident in extra time...)... well done Italy.

    Yes indeed, they certainly matched Germany in the penalty kicking dept. Would have preferred France to win, but after seeing ZZ's shameful exit from a glittering career, wasn't so sure.

    Exactly what I would say. It was all set up for the "perfect" end to his career, but now I'm sure it will haunt him for the rest of his life.

    hmmmmmm indeed... maybe we should get Wales to play Italy?! I wanted Italy to win :D I'm part Italian and proud of it. Am also proud to say that Pete (SuperMosh) is English! No Italian blood in him (I don't think) so HAH Pete I can beat you!

    Not sure what you mean by 'hhmmmmmm indeed'. I can assure you it is a fact. The last time Wales played Italy, was several years ago at the superb Millenium Stadium, and Wales most certainly won 2-1.

    They may be far off anything close to World Cup status... but they DID beat them.

    I am not part Welsh... I am 100% Welsh - and proud of it!!

    I wouldn't push this too much or someone'll start mentioning 1966 etc.....

    I can also remember in June 1991 Wales beat the reigning (1990) World Cup holders, West Germany, in an European Cup qualifier (though it didn't get reported that night on the 'British' TV news because England played the same night and lost - which is obviously a much more important news item).
