After watching Italy crawl back into their opening match against Paraguay, I began to wonder if they had what it takes to defend the World Cup title. I know it’s early but let’s be honest, Italy needs to step it up if they plan to make it to the final 16 and beyond. I was searching around to find some analysis on Italy’s first match and came across a great post by Chris Bevan on his blog page for the BBC sports website. I couldn’t have agreed more with his post and thought I would share it! Check it out here!
