  • The 1962 Italian National Soccer Team

    The 7th World Cup took place in Chile in 1962 and was won by Brazil. Once again 16 teams qualified for the event. The teams were divided into 4 groups of 4 with the top two teams in each group advancing to the quarterfinals. Italy returned to the tournament after missing out on the 1958 games. Their return was not a triumphant one. Italy found its way in Group 2 with West Germany, Chile and Switzerland. Going 1-1-1 caused them to finish third in the group and eliminated from the tournament. Below is list of the players that participated in the tournament, goals they scored and the results of each match the team played.
