Wait what? One game has such a big impact??? Wales and Romania in the first Pot???
Yes, strange isn't it? I don't recall one matches swinging so much.

When the draw is made on July 25th, Italy will be ranked lower than all those including Wales (who gain some points because they beat Belgium last wek)
Capello is no longer Russia coach.
This should be Capello's last job, right? I remember he said that he was 'too old' to coach.

I read that he got a 15M check for parting way. Nice retirement ahead.
