Ramos is a real negrito, that's why. Pique is just a hater.

Croatia could go far, tbh

Del Bosque needs to make a choice out of Xabi or Busquets

This double pivot shit is pointless in a tournament full of negative teams

They need to start Llorente because Torres is meh and Negredo is average/one footed

Besides they can't play with a false 9 (Messi is Argentine)

i was thinking the other day, what about man like pedro? 20+ goals a season, 2 footed, sick movement off the ball... swear he could do villas job better than torres and negredo? heard del bosque is reluctant to start llorente cos he doesnt really fit in with the whole barca minus messi style they play.

im sure everywhere ive read and what i see in the build up matches and even qualifying

Silva has been playing the messi role as false number 9

Llorente is 3rd choice after Negredo and Torres

Pedro is a good shout because he can work the channels like Villa did

Llorente I think VDB wants him as plan B

So Negredo or Torres or the false nine

Like I said the double pivot is useless if you have possession most of the time and your coming against Buses from all over Europe

That makes sense

Maggio as RB looks unbalance so it's better to have him as a wingback

De Rossi as sweeper makes perfect sense because instead of always relying on Pirlo to build the attacks as good as he is

De Rossi can step into midfield with the ball (Luis Enrique gets props for encouraging this)

As talented as the front two are, I would start Di Natale because out of all the Forwards he is the best finisher in Prandelli's squad.

I like the fact he picked no static forwards

That's the way forward IMO
