Italian Soccer-National Team
Italians and soccer
For many Italians, soccer isn't just a past time. To many fans, soccer is not only a family tradition, but it is also a passion. It's a passion so deep that even some Italian residents say that the sport is just as big a thing as the food, the Ferrari, or the Coliseum itself! Some say soccer is a faith that just about everyone follows, and that it's a way to bring everyone together.
An overjoyed Fabio Cannavaro triumphantly raises the World Cup trophy over his head. This is an honor for any country and it's a symbol of pride for fans of soccer everywhere, especially Italy
Italy's national team has been fairly successful:
4 time World Cup winners (1934, 1938, 1982, 2006)
European Champions (1968)
Four time World Cup winners! that's very impressive!
