Match Reports.

Group Tables.


Italy had a lucky start against Chile, and managed to hold off the terrible last minute Austrians for a place in the second round.

Against Norway, in the second round, they effectively killed off the match when Vieri scored his fifth goal of the tournament in the eighteenth minute.

Italy didn't look much much livier against France in the 1/4 finals -- loosing on penalties again.
