    Gentile giving Maradona a ruthless kicking during the 1982 World Cup. Italian defensive expertise at it's best. God, how I wish those days would return.

    Number 6. Baresi was suspended and did not play the final

    Franz Beckenbauer, 1970 vs Italy. Broke his arm but still kept going- what a legend. Sadly, Germany lost that match. However, Italy was also doomed because they'd gone into the grand final to play arguably history's best national team- Brazil 1970. They lost the match 1-4( Good for me because I'm a mad brazil fan).

    Not sure if it was a top-10 performance all time, but Pepe was outstanding in the Final against France on Sunday...Man-of-the-Match by a wide margin. Big time performance in a massive game

    I would dispute this one as Beckenbauer was stilling playing in midfield just like in WC66, it was there early 70s that he moved to Libero, at WC70 he was still an midfielder.

    Yeah, Pepe was the beast. I forget their names but the Greek Center backs were amazing in Euro 2004.
