Spain 1-1 Italy
Match-ups between international heavyweights during tournaments rarely live up to their billing, and here was another so-so bout that ended in a split decision, which pleased me as I had it down to finish 0-0.
I saw most of this game except, annoyingly, the five minute period that contained both the goals. Such is family life on a Sunday in suburbia.
As I've predicted, I don't think Spain will win the tournament, and I don't think Italy will make it out of this group and nothing I saw here has made me change my mind.
