Good morning my friends.  I hope you are all doing fine.  I was so upset yesterday with Italy losing against Costa Rica.  It was such a disappointment, especially, towards the end when Italy Head Coach Cesare Prandelli made the substitutions by adding 2 forwards making a total of 4 forwards and not even scoring a single goal.. We had Mario Balotelli, Antonio Cassano, Lorenzo Insigne, and Alessio Cerci… yet the goals never arrived.   Italy 0 – 1 Costa Rica.  Come on, guys, there are no excuses, period.   Simply put, Italy risking to qualify to the next round unless they get at least a draw with Uruguay on Tuesday 24 June.

I agree with the headline by Tutto Sport reading “Italy had stunned us, but in a negative way.”  Serie A co-ownership deals resolved.

Here are the front pages from Italy main Sports newspapers La Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport, and Tutto Sport from Saturday 21  June 2014
