Italy is playing its second game in the 2014 World Cup tonight against Costa Rica.

The Italian team is feeling cheerful after their win 2-1 over England last Saturday. Former national team coach Marcello Lippi said he sees in the players the same spirit of the team he led in 2006, the last time Italy won the World Cup.

Next Tuesday, Italy plays against Uruguay in what will be the last match of the first round, deciding which teams qualify for the second round.

Below is a video by FIFA TV featuring interviews with Gianluigi Buffon, Daniele De Rossi and coach Cesare Prandelli and a look at Italy's World Cup history:
