Forza Italia (Grosso)

Italy was in position to win their 4th World Cup title. They fought hard the entire game, but were still even at 1-1 against France in extra time. The match ended with penalty kicks, and after a French miss in the second round, Italy led France 4-3. Tournament hero Fabio Grosso carefully placed the ball on the mark, and stepped back until he was at the top of the box. He took a few quick steps and then he went for it. Running at the ball, Grosso kicked it deftly with his left foot, the ball sailing into the back of the net, left side. Diving the wrong way, the goalie didn’t stand a chance, and Fabio raced back to his teammates to celebrate. Italy became World Champions once again! Forza Italia! Playmaker: Tommy S.
