Juventus F.C. and the Italian national football team

Juventus is the club that has contributed the most players to the Italian national team in history.[1] They are the only Italian club that has contributed players to every Italian national teams since the 2nd FIFA World Cup.[2] Juventus have contributed numerous players to Italy's World Cup campaigns. These successful periods principally have coincided with two golden ages (known as Il Quinquennio d’Oro (The Golden Quinquennium)), from 1931 until 1935, and Il Ciclo Leggendario (The Legendary Cycle), from 1972 to 1986.

Two Juventus players have won the golden boot award at the World Cup with Italy; Paolo Rossi in 1982 and Salvatore Schillaci in 1990. As well as contributing to Italy's World Cup winning sides, Alfredo Foni and Pietro Rava represented Italy in the gold medal winning squad at the 1936 Summer Olympics, and Sandro Salvadore, Ernesto Càstano and Giancarlo Bercellino made Italy's 1968 European Football Championship squad.[3]

Juventus have also contributed to a lesser degree to the national sides of other nations. Zinédine Zidane and captain Didier Deschamps were Juventus players when they won the 1998 World Cup with France, making the total number of Juventus World Cup winners 24 (including 22 for the Italian team since 1934), more than any other club around the world. Three Juventus players have also won the European Football Championship with a nation other than Italy, Luis del Sol won it in 1964 with Spain, while the Frenchmen Michel Platini and Zidane won the competition in 1984 and 2000 respectively.[4]
