The Italians? A dodgy penalty? I won’t have it!

Nice to see Totti do somethingOh no you didn’t!

Did the Italian team just go through to the quarterfinals on a last-minute penalty? I thought they saved those up for the last day of the Serie A season, when favors needed to be called in and scudettos guaranteed?

In all honesty, I haven’t seen the play yet (will have to wait for this evening comma sigh), but it seems all too appropriate to have a game involving the Italian team end like this, what with the recent unpleasantness in the Serie A revolving around exactly situations like this. It’s like, you know, ironic and stuff.

(In all honesty, I really thought that the Aussies had a fighting shot at this one. I really did.)
