1) In twenty years – from the 2006 victory to the 2026 edition – Italy will have played misery in six World Cup matches. They were eliminated twice in the first round, twice and did not qualify. This is enough to understand that our football is sick.
Wembley? Impromptu magic. The victory only concealed a crisis on all levels. Let’s take the stadiums. Can’t build new ones (few exceptions). Old, anti-historic, anti-economy, ugly, unsafe, not suitable for families.
But how is this cultural backwardness possible in Italy?

At home coach Ventura naturally without blame. Then came the resurrection of Wembley, the raging crowd and the double-decker bus. On July 12th, the magical st. A wonderful year. Things from nine months ago. And in nine months we went from heaven to hell. Missing face, photo, FIFA standings (goodbye top 10?). Farewell to sponsors, awards, TV rights and a Made in Italy show.
