Italy

Italy play Football and hail from Europe.

Italy have won the World Cup 4 times, most recently in 2006. However last time round (2010) they went out in the Group Stage! In Euro 2012 they made it to the final so have to be considered one of the favourites. However they have their work cut out with a tough group.

Recent results have not been too promising, having drawn 4 and lost one of their last 5, including 2-2 draws with Armenia and Nigeria.

Much will depend on their talented but temperamental striker Mario Balotelli (check out the YouTube video below for examples of the nutty things this guy has done), and veteran gifted midfielder Andrea Pirlo.
