Italy Stuns Many
The lead to the 2016 Euro's all the talk surrounding Italy was about their lack of offense. Well all the doubters were rived wrong today. Italy stunned second ranked Belgium 2-0 today in what some would call a massive upset, but not me. The Italians got on the board early with a goal by Giaccherini off a beautiful feed by Bonucci. Is there a more underrated defender in soccer than Leonardo Bonucci????
The Belgians definitely had chances as Lukaku missed multiple opportunities, but the Belgians couldn't crack Gigi and the boys. Pelle finished them off with a beauty in extra time from Candreva to give the Azzuri a 2-0 victory.
Italy is now in the driver seat in Group D. Next game Friday 9AM against Zlatan and Sweden.
