Its a blue battle - and I wonder who will get the first choice of jersey tomorrow night. Anyway, I'm all for France even though the Italians though make better food and better cars and have hotter women. But there is something about French football and you do want the magician that is Zizou to go out on the highest possible high. Even though that said, a friend mentioned that Germany won in Italy in 1990 and now Italy will win in Germany. I still feel that Italy should have won the 1994 final, but one of my favourite players then - Roberto Baggio missed a penalty. Whatever happens I think tomorrow will see a great game hopefully worthy of the World Cup final.
But any bets on who comes third tonight? I think Klinsmann's boys will take it.

I think you're absolutely right about better food and hotter women. My meals in France were erratic, good in parts, but mostly mediocre and I presume that French food only shines at the highest end of the spectrum. In Italy, I almost never had a bad meal.

And the women, Italy has it hands down. The women are just more stylish and sexy and have this Mediterranean vibe going on that makes French women look like sour matrons.

What a shame! I had hoped for an Italian victory, but not this for Zizou. I do believe he was provoked, but why did he have to lose his nerve.
