Mario Balotelli headed the decisive goal as Italy emerged 2-1 winners over England in another high quality World Cup match on Saturday.
Ahead of the game, Italian paper Gazzetta Dello Sport predicted Azzurri win by 2 goals - albeit the prediction was for the war of WAGs (the wives and girlfriends).
The newspaper claims their women outclassed the partners of the England team in an article headlined ‘WAGs absent – Italy triumphs in the battle of the wives.’
England played some confident football trying to find the equaliser but Italy's defense buckled down and kept them at bay.
And at bay are the famous English WAGs as well.
Alex Curran has been unofficially banned from attending the World Cup!
Yes, the gorgeous English model and fashion columnist wife of Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard has been barred from turning up at the games because he thinks WAGs are little more than distractions!
None of the England team is thought to have brought their partners to Brazil - including Wayne Rooney's wife Coleen Rooney - chief WAG.
没有英国球员会带他们的妻子或女友去巴西——包括太太团的领导，Wayne Rooney的妻子Coleen Rooney也将不会出现。
