Italy Portugal Preview
This game should be one of the two that Italy will be certain to win in RWC 2007. Having beaten Portugal convincingly in their last meeting we expect Italy to run out winners by more than 40 points. They will probably rest some of their stars so it will not be quite the walk over spectators would expect.
