Since Italy are the current World Cup holders, we thought their 2010 team portraits were worthy of a Kickette critique. Unfortunately, the squad shots that follow below were not nearly as hot as the above free standing/sitting footballers.

We have come to accept that we are sometimes… wrong.

On the bright side, we do know what was underneath those Dolce & Gabbana suits.

Can this man do no wrong? They say pain is beauty and our hearts and loins ache for this man’s bounty full of pretty.

We could go on, but it’s not necessary nor fair to the subsequent line-up of photo failures.

Grade: A++. Please don’t retire.
