MATCH STORY

Italian football is an exercise in limitation. While they’ve long produced some of the world’s greatest players and teams, the Italian national team has made its name with resolute and organized defenses. And that was no different at the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Italy allowed just two goals all tournament — including Zinedine Zidane’s 7th minute penalty in the final against France. Through the leadership of captain Fabio Cannavaro and the ageless Gianluigi Buffon in goal, few other chances would be had by a France side featuring the likes of Henry, Ribéry, Vieira, and Trezeguet. It would be the last of those players who would see his penalty careen off the crossbar and fail to go in, and conversions from all five Italian takers, that helped Italy to their fourth World Cup title.

DESIGN STORY

The match side features the team’s traditional blue hue inlaid with a classical Roman column. The reverse has an Italian flag-inspired racing stripe, reminiscent of the many high-end automobiles produced on the Italian peninsula.
