Paranoid Italy fear being frozen out by Scandinavian skulduggery

Italy striker Alessandro Del Piero, carrying an equally big chip on his shoulder, said it would be scandalous if the Sweden v Denmark game ended up as a high scoring draw.
"It would be a dirty result if it were to finish 2-2 and we were knocked out," said the Juventus striker, whose Italy team might not be in such trouble had he hit the target in the Azzurri's first two games.
"But I think a 2-2 draw would be a difficult result to arrange, and if it happened it would be a terrible blight on both countries."

He is my favorite Italian soccer player but he does have the tendency to slack off just when he is most expected to deliver! GRRRR!!! According to the article Italy would qualify for the quarterfinals if they beat Bulgaria AND there is a winner between the Denmark & Sweden game. NO DRAW! It would be shameful for Italy to lose to Bulgaria. Let's hope Sweden beats Denmark! But if Italy are out, then in that case, I would have to side with France. LOL
