The Azzurri Advance

Barring a comeback of Turkey-Czech proportions, Italy will defeat France to advance to the round of eight. With the Dutch leading Romania, the Azzurri are all but assured of their spot in the next round against Spain. But not all is looking up for Italy as both Andrea Pirlo and Gennaro Gattuso will each miss the match after acquiring too many yellow cards. After their disastrous opening match against Holland, the Italians have much to be proud of in advancing, but with Spain playing so well, it could be a short visit to the knockout round.
