Facts :
With 15 FIFA World Cup appearances to date, Italy boasts an impressive track record. Their first world title came back in 1934, when they defeated Czechoslovakia 2-1 in extra time in a hard-fought final.
The Italians defended their title successfully in 1938, their 4-2 win against Hungary proving somewhat easier than the battle with the Czechs. Italian fans then waited a long time before their national team claimed a third world title.
Patience was rewarded in 1982 in Spain. After a mediocre group round, Italy gathered momentum and stormed through to the final where they proved too strong for Germany.
