“It was madness not to have timeouts in these conditions. If they want a spectacle, they have to give the players the possibility to recover. It was impossible to maintain that level of intensity."

-- Italy coach Cesare Prandelli on the failure to mandate timeouts during the Italy-England game in Manaus because the heat and humidity did not meet FIFA thresholds. He said Italy's work in training had paid off because its players kept going while the England players began cramping up midway through the second half. (Sky Sports)

    A friend of mine from the UK predicted that the climatic conditions would hamper England's style, coupled with a "slight" fitness preparation. He was proven correct, yet the Italians playing should've also began to wilt, but they prevailed.
