Italy beat San Marino 4-0 because that's what happens when Italy play San Marino. Coincidentally, all four goals were scored by players whose first names start with the letter a — Andrea Poli, Alberto Gilardino, Andrea Pirlo and, as a grand finale to the alliterative theme, Alberto Aquilani.

Andrea Pirlo's goal was especially delightful since it was a free kick that curled perfectly into the top corner. Like nature sounds or a tub of whiskey, it's the kind of thing that can relax you at the end of a hard day.
