Euro 2012 Match Fixing?

mATXCH DFiXING It has been eight years since the Italians were put out of the Group stages of the 2004 European championships due to a 2-2 draw between Sweden and Denmark. The result left the Italian side bitterly disappointed, to the extent that a few individuals in the Italian camp felt that there had been an agreement in place between the two teams (Sweden/Denmark) to consciously put Italy out of the competition. Here we are now in 2012 and low and behold Italy are in a potentially dangerous position in which if Spain and Croatia draw 2-2 then Italy will again be eliminated form the competition. This situation has given rise to number of individuals in the press suggesting that there may be a fix in place with the intentions of sending Italy out of the competition early. Whether or not there is any truth behind these suggestion n is yet to be seen, though if Spain were to drawn with Croatia 2-2 then there will almost certainly be a load appeal form the Italian camp.
