THE PREDICTION

Italy were unable to back-up their win over Germany in their opening game as they fell to an agonising defeat to Australia. That loss is undoubtedly a setback but they can still finish their group campaign on a high with their fate still in their own hands. They come up against winless Nigeria in this final clash and despite producing a much better effort in their loss to Germany last time out, the Nigerians ultimately fell short and it looks as though that will be the case once again with the Italians able to make an immediate return to winning ways.
