Cesare Pran­delli has revi­tal­ized the Azzurri. He won the first two qual­i­fiers of the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships of 2012, and he looks ready to win even more. While Italy only faced Esto­nia and the Faroe Islands, the two wins were impor­tant nonethe­less. And now, as Pran­delli looks to call up another set of Ital­ians to face […]


Mar­cello Lippi announced the pro­vi­sional Ital­ian national team ros­ter today on the FIGC web­site (offi­cial web­site notice here, Eng­lish sum­mary here).  Few con­tro­ver­sies were expected, as the Ital­ian squad won the last World Cup and looked to return most of that ros­ter.  There were how­ever a few items of note: AS Roma stars Francesco Totti […]

Totti was a star in the 3–1 win over Bari For Ital­ian soc­cer fans, the inter­na­tional break was excru­ci­at­ing.  The national team had two friend­lies (which Arse­nal fans would not con­sider too friendly) and watched to see who else would qual­ify from Europe.  Thank­fully, the action from this week­end was excit­ing enough to make up for […]
