Italy won the match historical, but (almost) there were no losers in the game of moisture: the Azzurri three points were carried, England confident they can compete with chances at this level, which was to demonstrate the inexperience appearance.
The speed of their forwards supported by a defensive structure with six guys behind the ball gave them many options. It was played to Liverpool (five player’s reds holders) and a Rooney left with less influence. The few counterattacks, and control mixed with other shots from a distance; both teams tested doubts Hart, for irregular and Sirigu, by debutante.
But he soon saw that in Manaus, in the Amazon, he was playing an extraordinary game played in unnecessarily demanding conditions: twenty minutes the players began to choose their careers.
But in two hit the party won in emotion. First, an Italian corner kicks that ended Marchisio just outside the box. England reacted immediately; there is no sign that the fear that has gripped them for decades. Something much, does the freshness of Sterling who played ten, which is not his usual place with Liverpool. The pass to Rooney on the left wing shot by Sturridge (fantastic shot on dribble) was the nicest party.
That left much evidence Darmian Paletta and tardy. And the therapist was injured in celebrations dislocated ankle.
The British offensive attitude took its toll in the second Italian goal: Baines did not Candreva’s move to the right and center finished him off Balotelli finally more effective than a front stage. The exchange of blows continued until the end.
