Big Finish

Sigh... I wish I had more to say about this one, but honestly, while the game was played with much pace and skill, it was sorely lacking in creativity. Thank god Andrea Pirlo didn't pull a Frank Lampard, and fire that rebound over the crossbar. His patience won the game for Italy. Also, David Odonkor, for all of his pace and skill on the ball, is a horrible crosser. He brought to mind bad memories of Eddie Lewis versus the Czechs. Also, Fabio Grosso is gonna get PAID when this World Cup is over (sorry, Palermo fans). Great finish though, and congratulations to Italy, who look quite formidable going into the Final (of course, who doesn't look formidable going into the World Cup Final?).
