Italy wins their 4th World Cup Championship title after beating France, 5-3 with penalties and a 1-1 draw. Italy who were never masters of penalty kicking made all 5 bringing them to a victorious win.
The last time Italy won a World Cup Championship was in 1982. They have now gone above Germany (who holds 3 World Cup Championships) and are considered the most successful European team in the FIFA World Cup history.
According to Italy's coach Marcello Lippi, he says that although he has won many championships, he has never felt the joy that he felt when they won today. (Source: soccernet.espn.go.com)
