The History of Italy national football team
When it comes to the top football countries in the world, one can definitely think of Italy. Known as the Azzurri, Italy has four World Cup winners, tied with Germany and second only to Brazil (five). They also won the Olympic Football Championship in 1936 and the European Championship in 1968.
Italy organised their first official match against France shortly after their establishment, and they won 6-2 with Pietro Lana scoring the first goal of the game. The following year, they changed the colour to blue, inspired by the Savoy royal coat of arms on the flag.
In 1934, Italy hosted the World Cup, which was also their first competition. The team is led by the legendary Giuseppe Meazza, arguably the greatest Italian player of all time. Italy beat Spain 1-0 after beating the United States 7-1. They then beat Austria 1-0 in the semifinals and Czechoslovakia 2-1 in the final. Yes! They won the World Cup on their debut.
The Italian squad at the 1938 World Cup was stronger than the first, thanks to the addition of the talented young striker Silvio Piola. And it turned out to be the case: Italy beat Norway, France, Brazil and Hungary to win the World Cup for the second time in a row.The World Cup has been suspended for a long time because of the abominable World War II. However, Italy suffered a terrible disaster. Fans should know that the entire Turin football team was killed in the Superga crash a year before the official national game resumed, and because Turin players are the key to the national team.
