Monday, but yes, must win that game No matter what happens at Wembley 

 

Yup, don't beat the Czechs and we're up against it. I'm not expecting much tbh, just hope being at home makes some difference.

Think if we beat the Czechs, we’d possibly only need a point to qualify in 3rd. Whoever loses between England and Croatia, we’ll probably have to beat also to finish 2nd. I’m leaning toward a draw being the best result in that game, then a win for us puts us in a driving seat of sorts.

They're no mugs but they're no Italy.

 

Comfortable for the Italians.

 

Called it :lol:

 

Turkey were awful!  0 shots on target! :vrface:

 

Fancied them as well, they have a couple of good attackers, but they were on the defensive for 90 minutes!

They were disappointing no doubt. A couple of good wins ove the Netherlands and Norway have skewed some opinions I think. 

 

That said Italy didn't give them a sniff tonight and they're by no means out of it.

Definitely, especially with Çalhanoglu and Yilmaz, I thought they would do much better than they did tonight. 

 

Their defence was suspect all night long. Wales will be licking their lips, especially with 3rd place potentially getting through!

Turkey are a good side.

Italy were just superb tonight and made them look very ordinary.

 

(or, as stated in the preview, Turkey are only good in Qualifiers and pish in actual tournaments)

Tbf Italy played well Turkey played poorly. 
 

Italy scored more than 2goals for the first time ever at the Euros the commentator said. Very different style under Mancini was good to watch. Difficult to judge them properly though I think

Anyone else notice how impeccably the Italians took their first touch and controlled the ball?

Looked like the ball stuck to their feet at times. Great technical side no doubt.

I thought the Turkish team suffered a bit from first night nerves, tonight.

Thought Italy were very professional and will be a tough nut to crack.

The catanacio thing has set the agenda for the British press for years. I got sick of it one season and checked the goals scored in Serie A and the EPL every week and there were a lot more high scoring games in Italy. If you believe the media it’s all 1-0 wins and 10 men behind the ball. 

I remember this ...

Clueless the lot of them

Forza calcio

🇮🇹

Bloody well better not be.... bad enough already.

Wouldn’t worry about it too much. We’ve seen one game so far and one of the teams in it would blow England away.

They always have been, what struck me when I first starting watching it was the crowd whistling if a defender hoofed it aimlessly up or out the park, whereas a lot of our fans cheer that.

I think they will go quite far in the tournament.
