    That's why those 3 teams have been in Pot 1 with Italy and Sweden in Pot 2 like the Irish two and Greece.

    How good is this Sweden team?

    Who is the best player since Zlatan retired from national team?
    Not at all good and usually Italy would knock them out easily but this Italy with this coach make the encounter more interesting.

    I agree. Will be interesting to watch. Though even if Italy lack quality, it's also a poor Swedish team imo.

    He's a businessman. What's to say he wouldn't make the right choice when in office? He's not kept abreast of military intelligence in the Middle East because he doesn't have access to it and perhaps doesn't have the time to be. But that's not to say he wouldn't make an astute decision when he has all the facts in front of him.

    I think they're not used to playing at those conditions, not just the temperature, but also moisture and wind. F.e. today in Stockholm 7 C and wind is 13 km/h while in Torino it's 14 C and wind is 0km/h, quite a difference if you ask me, I doubt that in November the weather difference will be smaller

    Come on dude, the weather won't be a factor. Swedens late autumn weather is fairly mild, and these Italians are all from North Italy mainly.

    Buffon
    Zappacosta - Bonucci - Chiellini - Spinazzola
    Verratti - Marchisio - Jorginho
    Bernardeschi - Belotti - Insigne

    Bench: Donnarumma, Perin - Darmian, Barzagli, Rugani, De Sciglio - Florenzi, De Rossi, Gagliardini - Candreva, Immobile, Zaza

    This moron Ventura is going to lose Jorginho to Brazil though. He probably doesn't even see him as Italian.

    Wait are we actually trying to factor the cold weather as a means to see a Swedish advantage? It's not like the German army trying to take russia in the winter

    Yep, I think he's made it clear he isn't gonna call him up. Big $#@! up if true, Jorginho is easily our 3rd best MF, arguably 2nd.

    would make sense of he's like Diego Costa but he's actually of Italian descent.

    I'm reading the first few pages of this thread.

    Remember when Andrea Poli was supposed to be the next big thing?

    This season:
    Eder 0 goals 8 games
    Balotelli 8 goals 12 games

    At least Jorginho got called up. And Zaza deserved call up, 9 goals in league, only behind Messi as league top scorer.

    A few puzzling selections still, but as you said, at least Jorginho and Zaza are in. Italy will need both tbh.

    So if Jorginho doesnt play he could still end up called up for Brazil at the World cup? Or what is that situation. He seemed linked to be called up by Brazil couple of weeks ago.

    So Ace Ventura pretty much has to give him minutes here to make sure he is italian capped now? In a frigging playoff. Good job Ventura. You had months to do this.

    Jorginho deserves to start, but I'm sure he won't. I'm just glad he got called up, surely Ventura wouldn't have called him if he doesn't plan on using him.
