Although they are an historically great side, Italy have been one of the surprises of this year’s competition. Who thought Southampton’s Graziano Pelle would be so impressive? How much fun is it to watch Antonio Conte on the sidelines? And how much will it hurt when he does it for Chelsea in a few months?
For Germany, it has quietly been a ridiculously impressive display, even for the defending World Champs. They have yet to allow a goal while scoring six of their own. They show no signs of slowing down. However, Italy have done well themselves, allowing just one goal and scoring five
This has the looks of a defensive struggle. But that is why they play the games. If somehow one of the teams scores early, that changes everything.
