Road to 2014 world cup: Italian #soccer team in Group D

The draw was held this past week for the group stage of the FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Since Italy went into the draw unseeded they got slotted unfavorably and therefore ended up in one of the most challenging groups. The opening game for Italy is against England on June 14th. Fasten your seat belts!

Italy are in group D with Uruguay, England and Costa Rica. Between them, Uruguay, Italy and England have won 7 of 19 World Cups.

Here is the link to an article that summarizes the groups and provides some interesting statistics:
