    Bit of a shitter that the first was denied because of a ricochet onto a hand but after that I don’t see the Swiss coming back

    Just realised I saw one of the Swiss players playing against a nonleague side when he was a kid at Newcastle. Bit of a step up from a friendly to celebrate the turning on of the club floodlights.

    Bit of a boring game. Needs a Swiss goal or two 😂

    I love Insigne. Such a great player, yet looks tiny next to every player on the pitch. 😀

    The Swiss aren’t scoring unless Italy have an absolute howler

    Great goal - this feels like a rather good Italian side.

    Oh dear, giving the Italians as much space as they want doesn’t seem wise

    I know most teams only have one game behind them so far but no one has looked as good as Italy

    Italy are just brilliant. Them and France have been the two stand out teams so far.

    Switzerland have had no ideas for the entire match, they barely seen to have any communication going on

    So easy for Italy. To be fair they’ve played two poor teams, but they’ve looked really impressive doing so.

    To be fair, Switzerland aren’t a bad side but it was very much men against boys tonight .

    Italy have been excellent, but they seem to play with such intensity that they might run out of steam a bit by the time they get to the latter stages. They tend to have a slow and measured start in the tournaments they've won or reached the final in.

    Gary Neville a very much glass half full kind of man; seems very negative and pessimistic about teams and players. I assume he thinks England are flawless?

    Brilliant result for Italy. They've looked absolutely incredible in the first 2 games. Appreciate, neither Turkey or Switzerland looked great , but still.

    The comments from Neville and the rest of the pundits crack me up, downplaying Italy's chances of getting anywhere. Yeah, let's just ignore the fact they've scored 31 goals since the last goal scored against them, and kept a clean sheet for 10 games.

    Obviously, anything could happen. They could get hammered in the 2nd round. But the way their performance was almost notched up as some kind of fluke against terrible opposition is ridiculous.

    Of the 9 people in my PL fantasy football league, 5 of us lumped on Italy before the tournament started. Was obvious to me that they were one of the favourites.

    I also have a small wager on Italy. And somehow drew France in the work sweeper. :-)



    As an aside, I see Buffon has moved back to Parma. According to the Athletic, this is so he can be in with a shout for getting to the next world cup if they can emerge from serie B.

    I do have a massive amount of admiration for him, but surely that's a bit unlikely. Good luck to him though!
