|Guinness Girls Rule|
The thing that stands out for me in this group is that Giovanni Trapattoni is Ireland's manager and I think this is some sneaky shit. I think the guy's a mole; he's a former Benfica coach after all. And he's Opus Dei; I read all those Dan Brown books, you can't sneak one past me. Guinness aside, I think Ireland's toast because of IlTrap.
So that leaves the champs and the chumps. Spain doesn't lose, at least not of late. And Italy, well they can't win of late. But they have enough to get out of this group, though it won't be easy. Guinness is pretty stout and so are the Irish.
Spain and Italy through to the quarterfinals.
