How quickly we forget France '98. We won with style and we played with panache...

We were also bundled out of the tournament in grand style.


Style is nice. Style is preferred. But what matters at the end of the day is winning.


I disagree. Uruguay have won the World Cup twice and England once. Ask yourself why no one respects them or accords them the same respect as Spain or Holland who have not even won it before.



Don't be silly. Neither team has won in the modern era. That's why they aren't spoken of in the same breath as Spain.

Italy are among the teams that everyone respects. Do they play beautiful football? They are respected because they play winning football.



Italy has provided the World with some of the most entertaining players ever. Alesandro Del Piero and Roberto Baggio are two of the skilful footballers I have ever seen. At Italia 90, Baggio scored a goal after beating six players with a run that started from the halfway line.



Enzo Franchescoli and Suarez are two of the most skillful and entertaining players ever to play the game. Doesn't mean that Uruguay play beautiful football. Neither does Italy.

Being a good goalscorer and being a beautiful footballer are two totally different things. During Italia 90, Italy played some of the best football ever seen on planet earth. It is just a shame they did not win that tournament.
