The second half between Italy and Spain has kicked off in Gdansk with no changes made for either side. How long with the score stay 0-0 before one of the sides has the guts to make a switch? Let's hope it's only 15 minutes.
Many tried to argue that the first half was actually rather nice, that it only lacked goals. I'd argue that it lacked an entire sense of direction. Italy, at least, attempted to get forward, although Mario Balotelli was lacking, and Antonio Cassano can't hit the target without a little support.
As for Spain, for goodness sake, give us a striker. This whole "play the ball around the midfield" thing is getting rather tiresome. Yes, they had a couple chances, but the azzurri have tested Iker Casillas much more than Spain have challenged Gigi Buffon. Bring on Fernando Torres!
