To all my friends….
A Happy Columbus Day!
A late goal Saturday in Dublin with time expiring gave the Italian team a 2-2 draw with Ireland in World Cup qualifying. The tie propelled Italy to the top of their group and qualifies the defending world champs for the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa next summer.
