Italy will face UKRAINE next Friday, Kick-off at 20:00 GMT (21:00 Continental Europe time).
Sport journalists say that we are in a "Highway to the half-finals", we have already challenged Ukraine in the pre - World Cup matches and won; hope those over-paid "sports champions" (the Italian soccer players, who take MILLIONAIRE paychecks yearly) don't screw it up.

"We (atheists) act in good conscience because we believe in moral principles, not because we expect a reward in Heaven." -- Margherita Hack
