Pirlo again was just so impressive.
Why is it that England so often finds a way to lose on the world stage that breaks your heart?
I agree with Kendall that we should not end sentences in prepositions, and that cliches we should not put up with. However, I have to say as a Brit that we are stirred but not shaken, bloodied but unbowed, etc.
Sad that Balotelli was not more closely marked. But the difference between Italian tackling and English tackling was clear, with Italy superior, ditto passing the ball one to another.
