It’s intriguing that Italy and Germany play Thursday in a match for the ages in historic Warsaw. How interesting is that?
Derek Chiapala wrote on Yahoo Sports: “I know that the European Championship is all about soccer, but it will be interesting to see if the broadcast mentions how two World War II allies are meeting in the city where the Warsaw Uprising took place nearly 70 years ago.
I don’t think any broadcaster is going to go there. Do you?
Italy defeated Englad in penalty kicks to advance to the semifinal. There were two players named Ashley who both missed PKs for England. My son and I said, ‘Don’t let another Ashley take a shot.”
Most people feel a PK is a sure goal but it isn’t, especially when so much is on the line.
Tuesday night my son was chosen to take a penalty kick during his match and he hit the left post.
He felt so terrible but I reminded him of the Ashleys.
If a game comes down to PKs, anything can happen and that’s what makes it bloody exciting.
Will you be watching the Germany-Italy game Thursday?
Today’s semi is between Portugal and Spain.
