Which player will lift the trophy first for Italy in 2014?



Answer on Which player will lift the trophy first for Italy in 2014?

I honestly don't think Italy is contemplating the 2014 world cup at the moment. I think that after Euro 2012 they'll seriously look over their chances. As of right now though it doesn't look good, they're currently in 14th place and their last 2 games were a draw and a win...except for the draw the other team scored both goals and the win only came after the riot and Italy was awarded the win as a consolation prize.

I can't see them being in the top 8 in 4 years, which means...

Brazil
Germany
Spain
Netherlands
Argentina
England
Portugal
Uruguay

Will be paired with the struggling Italians (it the top 8 stay as is). They had an easy group last world cup which they failed to move out of. I can't see them doing any better when they're paired in the same group as one of the above countries.
