Why Italy can beat Spain

Ok now come on, stop giggling. Seriously, Italy can beat Spain. Frequent readers of this blog will know the author is a massive fan of Spanish football, yet you can not deny the urgency of the Italian drive towards the title. Wrote this column for Irish Central tonight, and hopefully you can find five minutes to give it a little look-over.


First to the full disclosure. This column is a gigantic fan of Spanish soccer. Except for a hard to explain, forlorn love for Sunderland, the sometimes Premiership English club, the Spanish La Liga takes precedence in terms of weekend soccer on this column's TV. They just make it look so pretty, don't they? Barcelona, Real Madrid, Athletic Bilbao and even Raya Vallecano. They play the beautiful game like the beautiful game should be played. Beautifully.

We could babble on about how much respect we have for the Spanish game, but as always, money talks. If someone handed this column one million euros, dollars or pounds sterling and said, 'You can have this, but you have to bet it on who is going to win the European Championships' basically, it would be going on the Italians.
Here's why. 

Go ahead and check the full thing out if you can. Like it, splash it about, etc. Thanks!
