Uruguay 1 Italy 0: Tricky Italians out of World Cup, Video / Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup News


Italian football is after the World Cup from in ruins. Coach Cesare Prandelli resigned after losing to Uruguay and counted on his critics from. “We have no sense of patriotism,” he grumbled.

Of course, Cesare Prandelli also saw in his worst moment as a coach from excellent. The suit was sitting, the hairstyle was accurate, even as the sheer anger out of it broke retained the coach of the Italian national team’s composure. He had the association leader informed that he would resign Prandelli reported initially very composed. He was “as Technical Director responsible for the sporting result,” and that was after the 0-1 against Uruguay and the preliminary round from now bad. But when a journalist raised his hand to register a question, Prandelli’s voice was sharp. “Wait, please,” he said a few nuances to be rude. For he was far from finished.

Prandelli seemed depressed about the situation in his homeland. “We have no sense of patriotism,” the 56-year-old was angry. The reasons for the failure he sees not alone on the grass, but also in the alleged resistance in parts of Italian society. “We were criticized a aggressiveness, as if we were a political party,” Prandelli said.

The bitterness in his voice was hard to hear. Especially met him had evidently that he had been criticized for a raise, which was connected with his contract extension. The Italian association is subsidized with public money, what Prandelli brought the accusation that his million salary would be paid from the state treasury. This has the coach offended difficult.

It is also clear: These confounding factors were not the reason for the two 0-1 defeats against Costa Rica and Uruguay. Italy just has not played well. And that Prandelli was looking for the cause of the disaster sporting less to himself than to the referee, who had Claudio Marchisio shown the red card after an hour, was not a sign of greatness. One can discuss the dismissal, but completely unwarranted, he was not. “Until then, we have had more possession and controlled the game,” Prandelli said after the Italians had the game slipped away. And that the crazy bite attack of Luis Suárez against Giorgio Chiellini was not punished, was in fact a mistake.

Probably Suárez is subsequently punished for his madness, but that does not help the Italians on, of course. And so they are now in the midst of a turning point, because actually Prandelli’s influence had done very well as a coach. Counter hostility from different directions he made with Mario Balotelli first time in 2010 a black man to the national team, he openly called bourgeois honesty in morally battered country of Silvio Berlusconi, also changed the game Prandelli the Azzurri.

The old Catenaccio he abolished, he wanted to see lightness, playful elements and beauty of a “cultural revolution” was mentioned. Now Prandelli has failed even to the basic resistances against such a development. In a society that has become increasingly unsolidarischer in which each “a shareholder,” as he said in his farewell speech. “There are so many different interests there, everyone thinks only of his own cause, the sense of community we have lost.” And as the association president Giancarlo Abete the coach asked though, to reconsider its decision again, but at the same time resigned himself, is Italy’s football in ruins. He wanted to “clear the way for a new beginning free,” said the official. How might without Abete and Prandelli the future, will probably only become clear in the coming weeks.

The player that triggered the complete collapse at the end, stayed after the game only for two hours in the cabin, only the poor Gianluigi Buffon was elected by the fans to the players of the game, and now had the ugly trophy for that day receive extremely dubious honor: “This is a very, very sad day for me, for the team and for the entire nation.” The 36-year-old goalkeeper has possibly also denied his last international game, but that was given the momentum that had taken this evening, only a minor matter.
