  • The 2014 Italian National Soccer Team

    In 2014 Brazil hosted the 20th World Cup Tournament. The format for the event was the same as in 2006. The field consisted of 32 teams. The teams were divided into 8 groups of 4. Only the top two teams in each group advanced to the knockout stage. In the first round Italy was placed in Group D (most commonly referred to as the Group of Death) with Costa Rica, England and Uruguay. Italy put forth a lack luster effort and finished third in group play. Below is list of the players that participated in the tournament, goals they scored and the results of each match the team played.
