Euro 2012 - Day Seven

Again, sorry for the tardy, I did an NESN podcast appearance on the USMNT (which will go up today) directly after the late game ended and then had to rush out. After getting back late, I was so tired that I don't even remember going to sleep. Goofball.

Croatia 1 Italy 1

How does one say "Oof!" in Italian? Perhaps we should ask Giorgio Chiellini.

Spain 4 Ireland 0

Gosh, it's amazing what happens when you bother to field an actual forward! The combination of Silva and Torres wins the day emphatically.

andrea pirlo, that is a man of the match we can all get behind. the father showed the son how it is done, but croatia did persevere for the draw. now you have to wonder if croatia can get points against espana. i dont think ireland is going to just roll over against italy.
