No one can tell me Italy have a better team than England, yet they play superior football 

They don’t have better players but they are a better team, nice mix of youth and experience to

Italy been great again.

Can see them playing the final v France if draw allows.

They have but they have played nobody that can hurt them in the first two games.

Swiss are limited but they are a tough team to break down, drew with Brazil at last world cup in the groups. Very exciting for Italy how many times they've cut through, could've scored 4-5 very easily.

Problem with England is they don't have enough tempo midfielders who can thread balls through tight defences from deep, Phillips doing it on Sunday was rare example of this.

Critical of Jorginho at Chelsea but he fits in very well to this midfield and Barella is fantastic aswell.

Italy always been better at producing tempo central midfielders compared to England where it's all about box to box and lung bursting runs. Scholes probably the last top class one and he got played out on the left!

Yes

But I think what they've also shown is a shape and style that will hurt anyone, in terms of them playing their football it'll work vs the shit teams, the OK teams and the good teams, this front 3 will give Portugal and France problems 

Its not like England where you can see the limitations 

Obviously easy to suggest that real pace will test the CBs and mbappe has that pace but they also have experience so can control it with positioning etc 

They'd give anyone a game that's for sure

Italy on course for their 10th straight clean sheet.

Not playing old school catenaccio, stop the opposition playing before you play yourself type football either.
