    Italy plane struck by lightning; no damage

    GENEVA (AP) -As if facing Brazil wasn't enough stimulation, Italy has been thrown into shock with the team plane struck by lightning.

    No damage was caused but players and staff were jolted by the scare on Wednesday following the charter flight from Florence, Italy, to Geneva, the site of Thursday's friendly.

    Flight personnel moved quickly to spread calm, saying there may have been lightning but there were no eye witness accounts and there was never any danger.

    Italy coach Cesare Prandelli says "it certainly wasn't pleasant, and I challenge anyone to say `I wasn't afraid.' It's happened to me before but never this strongly."

    Despite Prandelli's pleading, no penalties were given.
    Now it's happening off the pitch as well.
