Is that considered a surprise result? I'm just not sure anymore... Belgium on paper are so strong that I'd say it maybe is? But I've got no idea where the Italian side is at right now?

The Italian side is poor compared to previous generations, however what you always get with Italian sides is a good defence and tactical brilliance and that was shown in abundance last night. I can see why Bonucci is rated so highly, he was immense and that ball over the top for the first goal was class. While I don't think they will win it, you can never write off the Italians!
