    Switzerland are as garbage as Turkey, you wonder how some of these managers are employed as International coaches, their 2 coaches can't organise a press of their defence to keep a line, how are they even employed?

    You can always throw your Hat in the ring. Petkovic used to manage Lazio - he isnít that bad - they battered Wales but couldnít score. Just not up to playing a team like Italy in Rome - which letís be honest isnít easy for anyone.

    imagine playing 2 v 3 italy midfielders and not closing down, or changing it

    manager was pants

    didn't expect them to win, but 2 goals from outside the box like they scored was pathetic.

    It'll be interesting to see how James can challenge the italy defense on the counter with his pace, don't expect wales to do well of course, fully expect italy to win.

    I agree completely Kev, a fucking disaster class by the Switz manager, just let all 3 Italian mids do whatever they wanted unchallenged all game

    Especially when italy's midfield is a lot better anyway, Jorginho was class and more hard working, even though it was 3v2.... probably all of them together compared to switz was more like 4v2

    But to be fair the manager can only do so much fellas. The Swiss players had no belief at all. Italy just a much much better team - better players and the Swiss were painfully aware of it. They donít fight like dogs like the Elsh or the Irish - they just accept that they canít play football at the same level and wilt.

    The question with Italy is more simple th a the pundits are making out. Yea they have scored 3 but they have missed loads. They wonít get those chances against better sides.

    Finishing has been poor for me

    Well the media is totally polarised on the issue for obvious reasons.

    England beat Croatia 1 nil at home and they are up there with the best.. .

    If they don't beat Scotland - a nation that should be well ahead of Croatia due to size, diaspora, wealth, lack of recent wars and proximity to the Premier League - they will be lambasted for being the worst side in history.
