@fnf r u italian? Anyways if a milan player not named abate doesnt play for italia, i hope they get crushed. Fuck every ladri, roma and inter scum on that team. I am not sure if inter has more than 1 player in the italian national team tbh.

Italian through my Dad's side... I wouldn't support this team otherwise. Still, Buffon, Pirlo and Verratti are my favourite non-Milan players in this side...

Greatest ever, I dont know. I've watched Italy since 1994, and 2006 was definitely the most cohesive team. Every single player contributed (even the goals were split between almost everyone in the team)..

So greatest Italy side since 94, surely. Not the strongest Italy side on paper since 94. That was the Euro 2000/WC 2002 team, I'd say. With Totti, Nesta, Maldini, Pippo, Del Piero all at their peak.

i am not so sure about that. 2002 team looked weaker than the 2006 side to me judging by the quality of players overall. Apart from grosso, i dont see any weak link in that side

Gianluigi Buffon
RB 2 Christian Panucci
CB 15 Mark Iuliano
CB 3 Paolo Maldini (c)
LB 4 Francesco Coco
RM 19 Gianluca Zambrotta
CM 17 Damiano Tommasi
LM 6 Cristiano Zanetti
AM 10 Francesco Totti
CF 21 Christian Vieri
CF 7 Alessandro Del Pie
this was the 2002 team
zanetti lol, tomassi, coco, luliano and even panucchi wouldnt make it into the 2006 team imo.

Can Costa Rica put up a good fight against England? Could we hope for England to end up with 0 points?

good news for Italy fans:

England's best player in the Ecuador game by far, Oxlade-Chamberlain, had a rough injury. He's expected to be 3 weeks out but the England staff are trying to rush him back to play apart in the WC.

At the moment, he remains a doubt for the Italy game.

Same on both counts, also Candreva. Not a fan of gigi/pirlo in Serie A terms but for Italy I like them obviously from a tactical standpoint.

I wish that video included goals conceded too, the De Rossi red card, the Materazzi/Zambrotta red card incident vs Australia, the Zidane penalty... ahhh man good times. Had no idea that that triumph would be by far the best feeling ever. With the way Milan are performing, (yes we won the CL the following year too ) but since 2007, we have had nothing to smile about. Yea we have had a scudetto but we couldn't not have won it given how much stronger our team was than Juves.

Hopefully Italy can give us something to smile about next month since Berlusconi won't.
