Xavi and Busquets look “jaded”? Are you watching the same tournament I am? The knock on David Silva wasn’t much appreciated either. Sergio Ramos has been awfully good, especially in the KO matches. I’m glad you gave Casillas and Iniesta their due.
Pirlo has been as instrumental as ever setting up plays, but I believe a player in his position on the pitch is now required to be much more sound defensively. To me he struggled to keep up in the Croatia and Ireland games.
So glad somebody agrees with me about Casillas. Mark Lawrenson’s claim on the BBC website that “I can’t think of many other keepers apart from Joe Hart who have had a great Euro 2012” was so disrespectful to the great man, who is, I understand, Joe Hart’s hero.
