First of all I am Belgian and support the Belgian NT. I wanted Italy to win the World Cup when they did, because I was a big fan of many of Italy's players at that time. Today, I just like the country. I have no particular relationship with the Italian NT however.
Secondly, Sweden were not remotely like us against Barca. We destroyed Barca the first leg. We were simply better and created more. Sweden created nothing. They scored through sheer luck. And then they did basically fuck all.
