Ten legendary international performances
Fabio Cannavaro (Germany v Italy - 2006)
In one of the most pulsating, high-quality World Cup matches of all time, Fabio Cannavaro's exemplary performance at the back for Italy was one of the features of their 2006 semi-final victory over Germany. The Juventus centre-back was commanding at the back, belying his lack of physical stature up against a strong home outfit, as the Azzurri held out the tournament hosts for 120 minutes on their way to a memorable last-gasp win. His excellent individual performance of ability and desire summed was up in injury time of extra time when he chased onto his own clearance before starting the move which would end in Alessandro Del Piero's clincher.
