The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - World Cup -

“Hav­ing watched Italy on Mon­day night my orig­i­nal view has not changed - they will strug­gle to get too far in this com­pe­ti­tion.

“Since the likes of Francesco Totti and Alessandro Del Piero left the scene, Italy just don’t seem to have the play­ers who can un­lock a de­fence any­more and that is cru­cial.

“I know Italy are tra­di­tion­ally slow starters and with their de­fence they will be hard to beat but I can­not see them adding to their four World Cups in South Africa, but we will see.” “I watched our game with the Ivory Coast and I have to say it was pretty bor­ing.

“Once Ron­aldo got booked he dropped out of the game which hit us hard. He is ob­vi­ously our main player and we are set up to play for him but I would se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing mov­ing him off the wing.

“Ar­gentina play Messi cen­trally and we should do the same with Ron­aldo. Through the mid­dle he is a mas­sive goalscor­ing threat and he’d win us plenty of free-kicks. He must be moved for Mon­day’s game with North Korea.”
