I am going to be my usual charitable self and assume that, rather than being impoverished of intellect, Alex McLeish is merely party to some sinister agenda that requires him to suggest a psychological conspiracy to put Italy through to the finals of Euro 2008 in their place. Appearing on all counts to be a rational adult with the cognitive ability required to put words together to form simple sentences, surely he will have recognised that in the dying moments of the game at Hampden Park, Italy were already through to the tournament, being tied 1-1 with Scotland. The referee decision that put them ahead, much like the one that allowed Scotland's offside goal to stand, was questionable, alright. Luckily for France.
Not quite a Zamparini, but definitely hovering about the Domenech.
