Italy's Defeat to Costa Rica and Uruguay in 2014 World Cup


#1

What do you think about Italy’s performance in 2014 world cup?

Personally I think that Italy was sloppy and they rightfully got knocked out in group stage. They started off the group as a favorite, but got outdone by Costa Rica and Uruguay. Their only consolation was, they beat England.

It was disappointing because Italy should have gotten further.

You would have expected Italy and England to advance from the group stage, but things were exactly the opposite. 2014 was a bummer.

Exactly!

2014 world cup was extremely unusual. Ghana getting a draw against Germany, Costa Rica knocking out Italy, Spain’s shocking performance, Mexico almost knocking out Netherlands, USA knocking out Portugal - list goes on and on.

I thoroughly loved the world cup though. Final between Argentina and Germany was classic.
