Italy Dominates Germany: UEFA EURO 2012 Semifinals

Tonight, the German team had to eat pasta because this semifinal was purely Italian. The game started strong on both sides showing a promising game, but in less than 15 minutes the Italian dominance prevailed. Podolski tried to score, but it was the 20th minute that Italy’s, Mario Balotelli fired into Neuer’s turf.

I have to be honest, but I do believe the German team was prepared; however, the team got too nervous. Still, I’m not excusing their poor performance tonight. I did expect this game to get dramatic, yet it was early into the game Italy crushed Germany. Later, Balotelli sealed Italy’s victory with his last goal. After the 90th minute, Germany recieved a late opportunity with a penalty. Ozil scored the penalty with perfection, but it was late chance to rumble the game.

 Italy now joins Spain this Sunday. Both teams will be disputing for the cup in Kiev, Ukraine. Do I have any predictions? No, I could say whom do I think will win, but I rather reserve the answer to myself. Why? I prefer not to predict because both teams earned have 50% chance of winning. The only prediction I would believe is from Octopus Paul, but he is now resting in peace.
