Want to follow the World Cup, but the absence of the Italian national team makes you sad? On Netflix you can follow the feat of Lippi's Azzurri of 2006
Rascal nostalgia. With the Russia 2018 World Cup now underway and Italy cut out of the games due to elimination at the hands of Sweden, fans of the national soccer team will be spending a different summer than usual. No games, no cheering, no cursing. Unless, of course, you decide to cheer some other formation (hoping to choose at least the winning one, as suggested by the artificial intelligence).
And if watching the World Cup live streaming is not an option, you can always give life (for the sake of argument) to the nostalgia operation. In conjunction with the 2018 World Cup streaming matches, in fact, Netflix will broadcast all of Italy's matches from the 2006 World Cup in Germany. In short, a dip in the past to relive one of the most exciting moments - football speaking - of these first two decades of the new millennium.
