Road to 2014 World Cup: #Italian soccer team recently qualified

I have been very remiss in not publishing this article much sooner. Soccer fans, please forgive me. The wonderful news is that Italy is one of the first teams in Europe to qualify for World Cup 2014!!

Earlier this month Italy beat the Czech Republic to secure their place in the World Cup in Brazil. They still have a couple of games remaining in the qualification round and we will follow along for those games on the blog, but no doubt there will be a bit of denouement since they have already qualified.

Here is a link to the FIFA site that shows the current standings and fixtures: http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/preliminaries/europe/teams/team=43954/index.html

Here are a couple of links to articles about Italy’s qualification:

Ci sentiamo presto,
