With Italy having just gone 4-0 down and running on fumes, Spain captain Iker Casillas took it upon himself to plead with the officials to put them out of their misery (in much the same way you’d feel morally obliged to go back and finish off a deer you’d hit on the road with your car jack), yelling at the assistant: “Respect for the rival. Respect for Italy. It’s 4-0, yes?”, only for the final whistle to sound almost immediately…
“Call it. We are done here.”
Truth be told, they could’ve probably ended it all at half-time.
