As Italy prepares for its first World Cup game against England in Brazil this Saturday, The Local has put together a video list of the team's golden moments in the tournament's history.

Since the World Cup got underway in 1930, Italy has clinched four titles, coming second only to Brazil, which has claimed five.

Those victories came in 1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006.

But the country has also had its fair share of commiserations, crashing out of the 2010 tournament in shame after failing to make it through the group stage.

The Local has taken a look back of Italy’s most memorable moments in World Cup history, whether good or bad, from winning in 1934 to one of its players being head-butted in the stomach in 2006.
