I don't know. I think there have been too many surprises so far. Croatia performed great and hardly handled the match against Turkey. They were dominant, but couldn't score a goal like they did in the group matches.

Germany was just a pain to watch against Austria and totally unmotivated against Croatia, yet they kicked Portugal out of the tournament and played quite well.

Holland was my pick for winning this tournament after their impressive group games but greatly disappointed yesterday.

And lastly, Italy often is having some incredibly luck and if their players show what they can they are impressive. They have often come back when you already have given up on them.

Nevertheless, I hope for Spain to win the match. They are quite a good team either, profoundly unlucky (so I hope this changes this time) and are presenting themselves better than the Italians so far.

And as far as most people could see it should have been Portugal, Holland and Croatia in the Semis !

Italy tends to get up for the big ones whereas the Spanish tend to choke.

On paper, Spain should take it easily, especially without Pirlo (Gattuso has been rubbish), and on paper the winner should be playing Holland.

That's the one thread I'm clinging to anyway ! Can the Spanish beat Italy in a big tournament for the first time in 80 years ?

Anyone that is writing Italy off is foolish. I hope to God they lose, but they rarely go down without a fight. I wouldn't be surprised if they won the whole thing now.

Arshavin player of the tournament even though he's only played two matches?....I think so.

Kolodin for the Russians twas also excellent, he can certainly strike from range.

True or False: Italian men are born with a 5 O'clock shadows?

This is the most awful game.

Bad news for the Spaniards because the Italians historically tend to advance in a lame manner like this. They've been absolutely terrible this tournament.

This game is boring and frustrating at the same time.
Spain has had so many chances and Italy is totally defensive.
IMO, Spain deserves to win, it's a shame this game will probably go into penalty as well.
I don't know, a lot of quater/semi final games seem to be this way, I noticed it during the last world cup as well.
Most of the other games were much more exciting.

Torres and Villa haven't exactly been brilliant with the balls they've been getting. Spain have been better so far, but not so much so that a 1-0 Italy win would be a huge injustice.

Yeah, with Di Natale as an example. If I'd been the ref I wouldn't have let him come back for at least 5 minutes.

Penalty shoot outs.
It's a lottery. Let's hope Spain is the luckiest one...

Iker Casillas is pretty good at stopping balls from going into the net.
