World Cup 2010: ITALY FIFA ranking: 5 Overall World Cup record: 44-14-19 Coach: Marcello Lippi Best performance: Winner, 1934, 1938, 1982, 2006 Overview: The Azzurri were a 10-to-1 shot entering the 2006 World Cup, the Italian Serie A was engulfed in scandal and no one gave Lippi's team much of a chance.
