I think Italy needs to re-evaluate how it re-forms its government's anti-mafia involvement first!
Take that to the debates forum spanky! Talkin' footie here. All countries present reforms needed. Soccer-wise Italy seems to have dropped in quality in their youth soccer. We have an international youth tournament in my home town. Have seen many future Italian national team players come through here as youths. Of late none seem to have made it to national team. Italy's team was old, decrepit and losing Buffon was costly. By comparison Brazil's, Spain's, Argentina's always great. The exceptio is Bolivia. Always sends great teams yet Bolivia has never been a football power.
