Notes - Home shirt as worn during the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea. Italy progressed through their group thanks to Croatia's failure to beat Ecuador and Italys final game point against Mexico. Italy met surprise package South-Korea in the round of 16 and were left on their knees after a late extra-time golden goal saw the joint hosts progress. Gli Azzurri had lead through Christian Vieri's first half strike but were dragged into extra-time thanks to Seol Ki-Hyeon's late goal. The game was not without its controversy as Totti was shown a red card for a 'dive' and Damiano Tommasi saw his golden goal disallowed. South-Korea eventually scored the golden goal with three minutes of time remaining leading to wide scale criticism of the officials performances - with some heavy criticism even coming from FIFA president Sepp Blatter
