What are the chances of Italy beating the Czech?
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

Well Italy is the powerhouse of that pool from what I've heard. Maybe if they kick the ball in the right goal vs. Czech, they'll win.

The Czech Rep attack has no teeth w/out Koller and Baros. I know Koller is out for the Italy game. Not sure on Baros' status.
Both teams will be motivated after sub par performances in their last matches. I see Italy winning 1-0 or 2-1.

Italy will beat Czech simply because of the loss of Koller's presence in front of the net.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Unless the Czech's find someone that can produce as much as Barros can, I don't see them winning. The Azzurri are a strong team and I think they'll try to be a little more offensive come gametime. Like Fireball Express said, both teams are eager to win so it will be a thrilling game.

Wouldn't mind the US beating Ghana. :-°

I think Italy can beat the Czechs, but you have to admit they were bamboozled by Ghana yesterday. Without Koller and a banged-up Baros, that forces Nedved and Rosicky not to be only playmakers but the onus of scoring goes to them. As for Italy, they were horribly out of form yesterday vs. the US. Their saving grace was their tactically sound defense. Totti just doesn't look right, but I think they should use Del Piero to set more of a pace for them. Italy attacked better in the second half, obviously with US only playing 9 men to Italy's 10, but give some credit to Kasey Keller. He came up big for them this time around.

I'm hoping the US can carry their scrappy effort into the game vs. Ghana even though they'll be without Mastroeni and Pope. I can't believe I'm going to saying, but I'll say it: Go Azzurri. Personally, I have a deep dislike for Italy, as much as France.
