BBC Sport ? Results Detail

My Summary: Torres gets a hatrick for Spain, Brazil narrowly win, the USA get a bit bad Ref., luck and Italy find yet another young star called Rossi. :lol:


Background info on the tournament, and results to date for those people dropping in to the thread, who didn?t know it was on and were wondering what the last few posts were about. :)
(The BBC digital channel is showing it here, but you?d hardly know about it, no adverts or trails or much of anything.:()

wikipedia said:

Man did we get screwed with the red card early. Also re Giuseppe Rossi, I guess this is a bit how Ghana feels with Freddy Adu.
Rossi is Judas around here especially we hate him a lot :p

Eh Clark is somewhat stupid in these moments, but it's a good lesson for him. We gave the Crapzzuri a run for their money and we'll be ready for 2010.

Jozy Altidore= Epic I misssssssss him soo much at NY :(

Summary: Comfortable results for Spain & South Africa, yesterday. Didn?t see the Brazil game, but BBC summary said it was pretty straightforward win.

Result of the tournament was the Egypt win over the World Champions, Italy.

And well deserved too, I watched the game and the Egyptians we really up for it and the Italians seemed to be "on the beach" after a long season.
Well done the Egypt-dudes.! :cool:

I'm so happy!!! Only thing I hated was the staying deep at the end of the match we should have gone for a fourth.

Now for Espana hehe :D

Why would Rossi play for the USA? He was born to Italian parents and hasn't lived in the US since he was 13. I know which team I would prefer to play for.
He isn't a good enough player to get wound up about anyway.
