The Beginning of the Gli Azzurri Team of Italy
Speaking about Italian football team background, it means that we refer it to Italy’s Gli Azzurri football team. The history of this team started way back on 15th May of 1910 in Milan. Going by this Gli Azzurri name, this team had their first match against France and ended with a 6-2 win despite the disagreement with FIGC that made Pro Vercelli to not make their players available. Azzurri started by only wearing white shirts for the upper half too.

The socks and shorts the players wore differed from one to another due to financial difficulties. Still, they got to wear their club attire for their bottom half though. The history of Italy’s Gli Azzurri team tells us that they begin to wear the famous club attire inspired by the color of the royal family only a year later. Also, it is not like this team plays football for fun only. At that time, the players of the team received cigarette packets as the rewards of their victory. Don’t you find it pretty interesting?

The Journey of Gli Azzurri Team Up Until Now
From the first match in Italy national football history, Gli Azzurri kept making their first steps and made their appearance on the international football scene. After a long time effort, this team had been recorded to reach the top of the football world in 1934, grabbed a gold medal at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, and even defended it in 1938 in France. By 1968, it became the champions of Europe. There were many achievements, indeed.

Well, an even promising team like this has ever experienced defeats one after another. Along the way towards the present Gli Azzurri, this team had been robbed by the ‘Golden Goal’ from 1998 to 2004 and had to go through disappointment in South Africa from 2008 to 2010. To reach this point, Azzurri made a great effort to appear in the finals of European Championships, Olympic football tournament, and even European International Cups. Italy’s national Gli Azzurri club is truly amazing. If you want to know Italy Squad for FIFA World Cup Russia 2018, following this data.
