Fabio Grosso, who scored the winning penalty for Azzurri in World Cup 2006, wore his famous #3 shirt in South Africa. He only wore short-sleeved shirt in the game against Egypt. This shirt was a tribute to former Azzurri with two times the world champions in 1930s.
Andrea Russotto is an attacking midfielder. He's now pursuing his football career in U. S. Catanzaro 1929. This shirt was purchased from mauriz1972ml9q claiming that it's a match-worn shirt. Nevertheless, Azzurri only wore away shirt in the game against Cameroon and Russotto spent all the time on the bench... anyway, it's a special shirt that's worth collecting as this was the first Olympic Games hosted by my mother country.

The match took place in Rome's Olympic Stadium after the Holy Mass for Athletes' Jubilee by Pope John Paul II.

Young Toldo played his first match for Azzurri in ECQ against Croatia, substituting Gianfranco Zola after the ejection of Luca Bucci. He had several beautiful saves in that match, but unfortunately he gave a penalty to Croatia and could not keep the clean sheet.

One of the 'oldies' in my collection. Here I must thank Pierpaolo for the precious information about this shirt, which made me learn a lot. Paolo Rossi, who scored 6 goals in WC 1982 which brought him the Golden Boot and Golden Ball, led Italy to win her third FIFA World Cup trophy.
