Last chance to vote. Italy or France?

I was hoping for a Portugal – Italy final. It would make things interesting here on The Drive. I’m glad that Portugal lost though, their flopping on the ground every time the ball was inside the box was a disgrace. I remember a few years back in the NHL some guy took a dive and flopped on the ice. The ref gave the opposing player a penalty. The guy on the ice then made a miraculous recovery, got up, and skated to the bench. From then on the opposing team could have cross-checked that player in the face and the ref would not have given another penalty. Thankfully on Wednesday’s game the Uruguayan ref got it right. He didn’t subcumb to the antics of the Portuguese.
