history

the Italian football roof federation Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio (F.I.G.C.) became to 16. March 1898 in Turin based and is since 1905 FIFA member.

Italy obtained first two large successes in the years 1934 and 1938, when one could win the WM in each case. Projecting player was at that time Giuseppe Meazza. 1968 could be won the first and so far only EM-title. However the Italians needed the good-natured assistance Fortunas, because in the semi-final a Münzwurf had to decide on getting ahead. In the final likewise a repetition play became necessary, before Italy was certain as a winner.

1982 could be brought in the so far last WM-title. The team with the goal scorer king of the tournament Paolo Rossi, which shot Brazil in the intermediate round practically in the single-handed attempt with 3 hits, Dino Zoff, which world-class-gate-wait, that with these WM already 40 was years old and a legendary defense row around Gaetano Scirea, won against Germany the final earned with 3:1.

Nearly tragically the Pechsträhne of the Italians works with the last large tournaments. Thus one separated with three following each other world championships (1990,94,98) by penalty shootout out (1990 semi-finals, against Argentina; 1994 final, against Brazil; 1998 quarter finals, against France). Altogether Italy in the five WMs lost only two plays in the regular play time between 1982 and 1998. In the final of the EM 2000 against France, one took 1:1 reconciliation after superior led regular play time only in the fourth minute of the sequel time and lost by Trezeguets golden Goal in the extension. From at the WM 2002 came already in the round of the last sixteen against South Korea, through golden Goal. Was the Italians by the indisponierten arbitrator the own golden Goal unjustified-proves denied and its star Totti, in very doubtful way, the place referred. Already in the previous tournament process altogether four regular gates had remained malfunctioned for them due to wrong decisions of the arbitrator bottom plates. At the EM 2004 separated one ungeschlagen after the Vorrunde, with the two better placed teams in the group.

The Italian national team does not apply owing to her adhering the plate to be usually very defensively adjusted internationally as particularly popular. This image developed above all at present the national coach Ferruccio Valcareggi, end of the 60's, under which the term of the “Catenaccio” was coined/shaped.

Italy plays traditionally in blue national team leotards. Historically this decreases/goes back on the national colors of the Kingdom of Piemont Sardinien and above all its ruler sex, the Savoyer .
