Pippo has to start dammit.

But Lippi is gonna field Toni..

Neways, Totti to be dropped for Camonaresi. Italy to play flat four.

I love my azzuris, but if experience serves me well a draw seems like the likely result... Then my fear is that Ghana defeats the US and we'll finish in second which sets the stage for an extremely dramatic 2nd round matchup with Brazil... Hopefully the US can pull either a draw/victory, but because they don't have the offensive firepower required to do so scares the $hat out of me.

If you go out to win, we'll take a point. That's the deal. If you get satisfied with one point, we'll give the group to Ghana.
