Italy produced a disappointing performance at the 2010 World Cup when they crashed out in the first round after starting the tournament as reigning champions. This is a team that excels when underestimated, which means they won’t mind the fact they’re not considered title contenders by most pundits.
The Italians have introduced a more attacking style of play at the 2014 World Cup, which will suit them given the defensive strategies their opponents are likely to employ. You can get Italy at 9/2 to reach the semifinals – great value on a team with an excellent World Cup pedigree.
