Sad moment for football, I play U-17 and this is bullshit
And UEFA are going to do something about this?
Yea....really disagree....first time an italian team do this and after what happend at EURO 2006 ( Swe 2-2 DEN) is really sad to see this now
so croatia didn't advance or what?
I`d kick out both and send the 2 lower teams in , this would give a lesson for the other teams as well
Instead of all those "respect" "fair-play" bullshit commercials , uefa should for once make a big fair play move and now ban these 2 teams , 3rd and 4th advance and italy/russia out
The worst thing is that this happens to Croatia, who had beaten Spain and France in qualification stage, who doesn't have any loss in last 34 matches, WHO WAS BETTER THAN ITALY AND RUSSIA, but was really unlucky in finishing.
Dear Russians, I see you have short memory, because you were qualified mostly thanks to us to EURO2008, because we've beaten England on Wembley, even though we could even loose and situation would be the same for us. And you Italians, I remember how you were frightened, and 5 FREAKING DAYS BEFORE THE MATCH constantly talked about our draw against Spain on EURO2012 which would make you exit out of tournament, but guess what, we wouldn't do that never, and that's what makes us different.
Croatia, more luck next time, fair-play will/must pay-off once, just keep working hard ;). World cup U-18 is yours.
how about stop crying eh? it's never your fault, always the victim
