From: Lamezia Terme (Italy)
Italy is always at her worst in September, due to the late start of the Summer holidays for the players. Still, there was also a lot of unluck. Bulgaria scored on the only serious attempt they made while Italy wasn't able to finalise, among other things, 10-0 corner kicks (another indicator of how the game went).
Pity, because Italy, while still not firing all the cylinders, totally dominated the game. But Bulgaria erected a wall and was able to keep it up. Kudos to them.
