Welp, luckily, the Manchester City striker has managed to get over his pain and go back to doing Mario Balotelli things: namely, running up insane bar tabs and dating ridiculously attractive women. The world is back to normal. Everybody, chill.
In injury time of Spain’s 4-0 victory in Sunday’s Euro 2012 Final vs. Italy, Spanish goalkeeper Iker Casillas asked the referee asked for “respect for the rival” and to blow the whistle early. Casillas would get his wish, and Spain’s bloodbath of a win would be official.
So: respectful gesture of sportsmanship, or ARROGANT SPANISH SWAGGER?
Spain won Euro 2012 with a dominating performance over Italy, and, in the process, began a whole bunch of “best team ever” talk. Watch every goal from the Final (and just their greatness yourself) right here.
Here’s Andrea Pirlo’s Chip Penalty Shot Against England That Helped Send Italy Through To The Semis In Euro 2012
In a match dominated by the Azzurri from start to finish, Italy’s Alessandro Diamanti knocked home the fifth and final penalty of his team’s quarterfinal match against England to send the Italians through to the semis. After no goals had been scored in regulation or overtime, it came down to penalties to determine who will be facing Germany in the semis. But the real star of the show was Andrea Pirlo, who calmly chipped the ball down middle on his penalty while England keeper Joe Hart, who dove to his right, watched the ball slowly float into the goal. Watch Pirlo’s cheeky right foot, after the jump.
Euro 2012 has officially dazzled us. Spain’s Cesc Fabregas equalized in the 64th minute against Italy, three minutes after Italy’s Antonio Di Natale broke the scoreless draw. But the real gem is the passing, specifically David Silva’s touch on to Fabregas. Spain and Italy’s match ended in a 1-1 draw, which included multiple blown chances by Spain’s Fernando Torres and an extremely strong showing from the Italian side. Video after the jump.
