Italy’s Serie A Relatively Silent In South Africa

========================================================

The top goal-scorers from Serie A in Italy did not (or, in some cases, have not as of yet) exactly cover themselves in goal-scoring glory at the World Cup finals in South Africa although the veteran international Eto’o did end up with a pair of strikes despite Cameroon’s early exit from the tournament.

Italian strikers, in all reality, ought to be every bit as embarrassed as their attacking constituents of England’s national team, who are, oddly enough (at least for the time being) coached by Italy’s 1974 World Cup midfielder FABIO CAPELLO.

Paraguay, New Zealand and Slovakia have never been traditionally-known, after all, to boast defenses of such impenetrable quality.
