Well, Like I said , What a feeling. But it ends here unfortunately. This post will come alive again when the Euro 2008 qualifiers begin. It was great to have followed my team from training and pre season friendlies right up to Cannavaro lifting the cup. For those of you who sms’d to watch on Monday Evening . Thanks Again. RAI Channel covered everything from the team bus entering Circus Maximus to the dancing and singing that ensued. It was world class seeing the guys parade the trophy around and dancing as we so used to seeing them only on the pitch. The Players sang the anthem again and it was a party!part!party well into the night.They sang their team song, Come on Capitano and Cannavaro scram out for Gianluca Pessoto. Like I said wish I was there.I am planning to put some videos of Circus Maximus up as soon as i figure out some dowloading functionality.
The Squad under Lippi were Solid as a unit and it was team spirit that got the Azurri through. When Totti scored the stopage time penalty and Grosso struck before the penalty shootout and DEL scored I knew this was our cup.And Buffon ! What a keeper. Players that stood out for me were Buffon, Zambrotta, Cannavaro, Grosso, Perotta, Pirlo, De Rossi and I think DeL Piero had a great tournament. Overall This was the best team and unit that I have seen.
But here are the pics to finally epitomise a Great Campaign, Tournament and erase the Bad Luck of The Past.
FINALLY WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS
