And, as already said by another scriptor, Italy might (and without Toni would) have beaten Spain in the quarter final, and then presumably would have won the whole sheebang.

Any coach can replace a player who underperforms in a match. Why did Donadoni use him in all 4 matches? Even Spain’s Luis Aragones had the luxury of replacing Fernando Torres in the middle of a match with a domestic league star Guiza. Who knows if domestic league star Boriello could have done better in the Italy matches?

Italy being the only team that Spain could not beat in full time and had the best chance of the game too… for all the crap that has been said about Donadoni and the italian team it very easily could have been Italy in the semi final or final had the penalty shoot-out gone their way. Why Holland? Because when you thrash Italy and France you should not be losing to Russia.

They got what they deserved. Viva Espana y Viva Fernando !!!

Eric Cantona has come out and correctly blasted the French for being “boring” and I agree – they are individually and collectively the biggest disappointment of the tournament.
