Stephen El Shaarawy, Mario Balotelli, Mattia De Sciglio, Riccardo Montolivo, and Ignazio Abate all started for gli Azzurri today (with Mattia, Riccardo and Ignazio going the full 90+ minutes.) Milanisti nella Nazionale!
On the eve of his 44th birthday, we look back at the illustrious career of Il Grande Capitano, Paolo Maldini.
Thiago Silva, wearing the Captain’s armband for the Selecao, also scored a goal for his country tonight, and it was just as beautiful as the Duckie’s, because everything Thiago Silva does is wraught with grace and beauty as Thiago Silva is a flawless human being.
Take heart, Milanisti. Tonight, Alexandre Pato scored a beautiful goal for his country AND managed to play a full twenty minutes without crippling himself. Can we say IMPROVEMENT?
I just wanted to apologize for my relative absence. I’ve been swamped since February. Fret not - soon I shall return with a whole new look and more regular updates!
In the meantime, FORZA LOTTA VINCERAI!
