This formation doesn't suit Italy. Why did Prandelli change such a good formula? Doesn't help that Pirlo has been crap, but the offensive midfielders are De Rossi, Marchisio and Thiago Motta - no invention. And nobody on the flanks to pull the Irish out of shape. If Prandelli insists on this formation play Giovinco in the hole, not fucking Thiago Motta.
Very poor, but Italy are 1st as it stands? Spain need a goal.
