Group F

Did I really say,

Group F sees another seemingly easy route to the Round of 16 for a Nation with World Cup Pedigree (in this case, one that's second to just one).  Italy should qualify easily in a group which also contains Paraguay, New Zealand and Slovakia.

Apparently so. What a foolish man I am! But hey, on the face of it, Italy should have qualified easily and they will be kicking themselves black and blue all the way to the airport and all the way home. How did they do it? There was no public washing of dirty linen in the French manner, but there was something clearly not right with their approach. A draw versus Paraguay is fair enough, especially given that this was the hardest game. But the draw with New Zealand was unforgivable and then to allow Slovakia, who had previously also been poor, to take the initiative the way they they did... well. Italy received just what they deserved.

  • Italy 1-1 New Zealand Azzurri coughs and splutters and that’s just over the opening goal.
  • Paraguay 2-0 Slovakia South American teams are really getting it together so far at this World Cup Tournament.  Paraguay virtually assured themselves of a place in the last 16 with this victory against a poor Slovakia team.  With their last game against New Zealand, and a point all they need it is looking very good for the Paraguayans. Anyway, ...
  • Slovakia 1-1 New Zealand My what a strange game. I listened to the second part of the first half – the bit after Ian Dennis took over on commentary and then I heard the Jacqui Oatley section of the second half before watching the rest of the game on the BBC with Ian Dennis and Graham Taylor for company.  ...
  • Paraguay 1-1 Italy I think that this result shows why, if you are an Englishman desperate for World Cup success, you shouldn’t panic too much about the draw with he USA.  The fact is, Italy always seem to start like this and their World Cup record isn’t too shabby is it? This was an absorbing contest.  There may have ...
