STARS TO WATCH!
If you’re into saves that are barely believable, take a look at this dude in between the sticks for Italy. He’s been around for yonks but to score past him you have to do something pretty special!
His job: To make Italy’s defence look fearsome!
Daniele De Rossi
De Rossi snaps around the midfield like an angry spaniel - he’s feisty in the tackle and his energy gives the Azzuri that legendary bite in midfield!
His job: To fire up the Italian midfield!
Watching Pirlo is one of the greatest sights in world football - he’s on a different planet to most midfielders! He’ll be driving Italy forward with his stunning passes!
His job: Supplying passes and pinpoint crosses
