Italy scandal worse than feared

It's hard to believe, but the man recently appointed to head the Italian soccer federation thinks the ongoing scandal is even worse then he thought it would be.

"I didn't expect to find such a serious situation,'' Rossi told the ANSA news agency Thursday. "I thought it was much more circumscribed.''

It seems obvious that the top Italian league is going to take some big hits, but the question on everyone's mind is will the Italian national team get dragged into their nation's dirty business?

Rossi does not think it will and that the team will be able to stay focused on the World Cup, but what else would the head of the Italian soccer federation say?

With just a little over a week till Italy kicks off their run against Ghana, changes are no players will be disqualified. However, comments like this from Rossi can only increase the pressure from the press on the team as they finish their preparations.
