Speaking of his teams first half efforts a misty eyed Italian Manager Marcel Lippi said ' The way we rolled over and let Paraquay take the lead was not unlike the performance given by our Army at El Alamein. These boys should be proud of themselves in emulating the efforts of their grandfathers so why they had to spoil it by equalising in the second half I don't really know because fightbacks in Africa is something the Italian nation is not usually known for'.
Italy's first half captitulation brought back memories of WWII Africa 1942.
