The 1986 world cup was the best, watching it in a color screen of 24 inches was a gift. My dad brought the tv from Germany and he was a big German fan obviously. He actually helped me recognize the Italian skill first time and differentiation between Latin and European styles. We watched the 1982 black and white, I was too young but cannot forget Rossi. I instantly became a fan of Baggio after 86. Remained a fan of Scilachchi during 1990. 1994 was a Brazil era. During 1998 I watched the matches with a detached manner knowing the the whole staging was confirmed to one particular goal, making Ja Perez happy and make France the champ. Not a Maradona or Zidan fan. Never. 2006 was joyful time as Italy won it again. Did not follow 2010 much. Now 2014 already produced some memorable moments. Hope it continues. That is like 32 years of history right there.
À vaincre sans péril, on triomphe sans gloire.
