A sub-headline in national newspaper La Repubblica said: "From Toni to Panucci, the perfect game - but it is a 2-1 (win) obtained with a World Cup spirit."
Ten million viewers watched the game on television in Italy and they were given immediate cause to cheer after Toni's second-minute opener.
Now if only we hadn't managed to lose to Georgia we would have gone through. We do so well against the odds - beating France & Ukraine & playing our hearts out after losing a silly goal to Italy in the 2nd minute. It would be nice to kill the dwarves as well as the giants.
