Euro 2012 Team Profile: Italy

Six years prior, Fabio Cannavaro lifted the World container for Italy. From that point forward, a ton has changed in the group. Many best players resigned, clearing a path for youthful blood while Cesare Prandelli supplanted Marcello Lippi as the head mentor. Additionally, the group hasn't won any real trophy since 2006. A quarterfinal exit in Euro 2008 was trailed by an embarrassing first round exit in World container 2010. The more current age of Italian players has a chance to substantiate themselves on the fantastic stage. Will they meet the challenge at hand and reestablish their nation's pride? Or on the other hand will they squander this chance? We need to pause and watch.

They kick-began their long and burdensome voyage with a 2-1 triumph against Estonia on third September, 2010. After four days, the Azzurri destroyed Faroe Islands 5-0 at home. An objective less draw against Northern Ireland saw them drop their first purposes of the crusade. Their next diversion against Serbia, played at Genoa, was deserted because of savage conduct with respect to Serbian fans and the Italians were granted a 3-0 win. Following a six-month hole, The Italian Army proceeded with its forward walk vanquishing Estonia and Faroe Islands by and by and dispatching Slovenia twice. After four successive amusements without surrendering objectives, the measly Italian safeguard yielded a single objective against Serbia in October 2011 and the diversion finished in a draw. Having guaranteed capability, Italy beat Northern Ireland in their last amusement in what was basically a dead elastic. Italy qualified as gathering victors, having won six and drawn two.

History at the Euros
