Italy's successful run in 2006 WC is still a surprise to me. WC FInals are not for me as I simply can't support either Brazil or Germany.

But the most heartbreaking moment for me was Baggio's miss at 94 WC Final against Brazil. He single-handedly took ITA into final and then couldn't hold his nerve at the end when he was such a cool-headed player and a terrific penalty taker. Made me cry which made my mom cry.

Anyway, I didn't lose all interest in this upcoming WC although Italy couldn't qualify. Even if they did, they would perform poorly as they didn't come up with fresh talents for almost a decade now. I will be supporting ARG as well, mostly for Messi. But I think he had his opportunity last time. He is short of Maradona just by a WC Trophy.
