Italian Soccer-National Team

By Joseph

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.

National Team

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!
