Egisto PANDOLFINI
is one of only ten Italian players who scored in the first minute of an Azzurro match whilst Francesco TOTTI is the only Azzurro player to be disqualified through TV footage. At 32 years, 6 months and 15 days, Max TONETTO was the third oldest player to make his debut in Azzurro.
Francesco ANTONIOLI
is the third most Unused Call-Up Azzurro player who never played with the Italian National Team (7 Unused Call-ups). Luigi ALLEMANDI was the Azzurri Captain in two matches when the Azzurri won the 1935 Coppa Internazionale, whilst Fulvio BERNARDINI was the Azzurro Captain for one match in the 1932 Coppa Internazionale when they finished second. Guido MASETTI won the 1934 and 1938 World Cups although he never played a game in both tournaments. He is thus one of only four players (all Azzurri) to be the first to win two World Cups and consecutive ones, the only European players in World Cup history to achieve this.
