The Italian soccer team is arguably one of the best, if not the best (they are the world champions after all), in the world. They also have a legacy that is not very sportsmanlike. They are notorious “divers” – falling down at the least touch, feigning to be hurt beyond belief, “writhing in pain”. The entire soccer world has known this for years, but now there’s visible proof. First, here is video of a “dive” from the Italians match against Paraguay in this year’s World Cup.
Now, here is hidden video of their practice, that shows how The Italians practice their theatrics. Amazing – and funny.
Don’t try this at home!
