Ukraine-Italy: 3-0, some afterthoughts

Welcome back to the real world of football. In that world, Italy and Ukraine belong to different categories and only a miracle could've averted the predictable outcome. Seemingly the story is the same - 0:4 from Spain don't look that much different than 0:3 from Italy. However, in terms of the quality of Ukraine's play the contrast was stark - Ukraine played better and actually did have first-rate scoring chances. Had Kalinichenko scored on 62th(?) minute to have the game tied 1:1, who knows...
And Shevchenko might as well not to try to save his excellent dribling till the very last minute.
Italy goes on Ukraine goes home with pride...

Thank you lads, for everything!
