Three years ago today Luis Suarez bit a chunk off of Giorgio Chiellini’s shoulder blade and then complained about it because that shoulder’s … consistency didn’t live up to Suarez’s expectations and ended up hurting his teeth.
Aah world cup,I miss you.
The game looked set to be goalless at the break but the deadlock was finally broken in first-half stoppage time, defender Dante pouncing from close range after Fred’s header had been brilliantly parried by Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. Giaccherini, teed up by Mario Balotelli, rounded off a swift counter-attack to get Italy back on level terms within six minutes of the restart. Parity lasted less than four minutes, however, before Neymar placed a fine free-kick into the top corner, leaving Buffon stranded. Fluminense forward Fred then extended Brazil’s lead with a neat finish into the top-left corner from Marcelo’s pass midway through the second period. Chiellini gave Italy hope of a comeback when he converted Alberto Aquilani’s assist five minutes later, and they were within a whisker of making it 3-3 10 minutes from time when Cristian Maggio’s header smashed against the bar. But the equaliser was not forthcoming and Fred restored the 2014 World Cup hosts’ two-goal cushion in the 88'th minute with another close-range strike after Buffon had denied Marcelo. | (insp)
