Italy does not deserve the World Cup.
I'm surprised to hear this from an Englishman like you, geo.
By the way, I thought the same after Cannavaro-Henry accident. I mean, I found that foul vulgar and unfair. I thought Cannavaro should have sent off. After that, however, the ref, who I didn't like, gives France that ridiculous penalty and I'm back supporting Italy.
The most positive aspect of the all story, anyhow, is that, finally, we won't have to watch anything about Italy's victory in 1982 any more. What a relief...
