The Last Roman – Part 29: World Cup 2006 | @FMCM_FC

Hello and welcome back for another special as we enter World Cup 2006. This year we enter as Holders after winning the last World Cup. In the Euros we crashed out at the group stage which was pretty poor to be honest. We aren’t as good as 4 years ago and we are still transitioning from that World Cup winning team. Let’s see how we do here. Let’s check out the group stages.

It’s a tricky group but we should be getting through without too much trouble.

Hosts England look to have an easy group.

I think this group will finish as it is now.

Brazil vs Zambia is the one we all want to see.

Don’t fancy picking a winner here.

This is tougher than it looks.

Holland vs Portugal will be tasty!

France vs Rep of Ireland. We’ve seen that one before.

Perfect start. Dino Baggio gets us on our way before getting injured. Totti doubles the lead and gets a late 2nd from the spot.

Such a boring game! the 2 goals came within 5 minutes of each other and the rest of the game passed with very few chances.

Absolutely open season here. Totti of course taking full advantage with Del Piero backing up.

Scoring so many against Iceland sees us top the group. Here is the 2nd round draw.

No real shocks other than Bosnia topping England’s group. We should beat Ireland but it could be tricky, Totti is suspended. Holland vs England is the stand out draw.

Absolutely brilliant! Stellone was sensational! He ripped the Irish defence to pieces. The only downside is Sclosa getting a red card.

Bosnia knock Portugal out to setup a Quarter Final with us. Germany vs Brazil will be a classic! in fact all those games will be close. Norway knocked out Argentina and Holland got rid of hosts England.

Of course it’s Totti with the goal to send us through. He is always there when we need him the most. Buffon was superb in goal as well.

Brazil beat Germany so we will have to navigate them to get to the final.

Amazing!! What a game! Stellone grabs 2 in 3 minutes to give us a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes. Amoroso gets one back in the 25th minute and then it gets really tense. Both teams have chances but it’s a worldie from Juninho that levels the scores. Then in the 86th minute Totti breaks away and slots it past Jean to send us through to the World Cup Final!

Norway beat France 2-1 in the other Semi Final! Brazil then beat France 3-2 in a classic third place game. So, on to Wembley for the final.

Back to Back WORLD CHAMPIONS!!! Captain Totti is a double world champion!! He opens the scoring with a tidy finish in the corner only for Rekdal to score for Norway straight from kick off. It’s all Norway until the hour mark when we start to push back. In the 77th minute Totti hits one from 25 yards, it beats the keeper but not the post. It cannons to the feet of Briaschi, who is only playing because Daino is injured, and he lashes it into the roof of the net!! We see out the win and it’s party time again!!

Join me next time as we crack on with Roma. Double World Champion Totti will be leading the way!
