17.05.2009 The first World Cup victory for Italia
Italia won the U20 World Cup XII and for the first time in Hattrick history Italia are now world champions. Italia didn't give a defensive France much of a chance in tonight's final, and 5-0 was a fair result.

Congratulations Italia, and especially coach Mokiforever!
