17/6/2008 Euro 2008 France vs Italy Live

At the start of the tournament nobody would have expected this live online and radio commentary Euro 2008 group match between France and Italy live to hold so much significance and importance and at the end of the day it might not even mean much as either team might still not advance even if they win it accordingly as they must. There is more than a win at stake in this live online streaming match and even more than a place in the quarterfinals as either or both teams that does not advance would signal an end of a generation and massive changes need to happen in both teams. The French need to find a renewed balance in the squad and a key player to build the team around, as they have always had individualistic personalities which would render building a team based squad useless as players like Gallas, Benzema and Henry have too much ego. They will definitely not be able to get that in place in time for this live soccer commentary match between France and Italy despite their weak claims of internal unity and will likely struggle again tonight.

The Italians as always, fail to see their own shortcomings and in this live commentary and online Euro 2008 group match between France and Italy live we could once again see the weakness of this team which is the total lack of proper teamwork and cohesiveness at the back which has always been the strength and hallmark of past successful Italian national teams. The Italians have gone from masters of the art of defending to the circus act of trying to stop opposing players from their goalmouth. It is all very disconcerting and disappointing as they have somehow always been entertaining to watch in a studious way with their methodical play and backs to the wall last ditch defending which we might see again in this live commentary and live streaming radio telecast match between France and Italy but probably more the result of desperation. Del Piero has always once again failed to deliver when given the chance although he was starved of service and if that were to continue again in this live commentary and live streaming TV broadcast match between France and Italy it should be the last time we see of many current players for future matches.
