Group G

Italy vs Ecuador

Ecuador kicked-off but it was Italy who quickly stamped their mark on the game, with Totti and Vieri proving to be a lethal combination.

Italy vs Croatia

France, Portugal, Argentina and now Italy have all suffered defeats at the hands of supposedly lesser teams, to make the 2002 World Cup a delight for fans of the underdog.

Mexico vs Italy

Italy finished second in Group G, after a draw with Mexico in their final group game.

Knockout Stage

South Korea vs Italy (Second Round)
