Euro 2012: England v Italy Highlights

Wow. Not sure England even deserved to be on the pitch for this one after that display. In a seemingly surprising move by Hodgson, England looked like they were playing to get to penalties. Even a token bicycle kick by Rooney that was well off the mark couldn't lift the English fans as Italy had 2/3 of the possession and five times the number of shots. Had Italy's midfield actually put a pass to Balotelli's feet, the game would have ended much much sooner. Instead, he was forced to dig out errant passes sent behind him and despite this, looked extremely dangerous against the tepid British. This went to penalties, and Italy finished while England did not. 0(2)-0(4). Video: Footytube
