Italy will sport their familiar home blue colours while France will again play in white in Sunday's FIFA World Cupô final in Berlin, FIFA said on Thursday.
It will be the fourth match in a row at the finals that France, known as Les Bleus, will wear white shirts. Italy are the designated 'home' team for the final, which kicks off at 20:00 CET at the Olympiastadion.

Its good to know we will remain Azzurri in the Final. Its just that when Italy wears white I always remember the pain of the 98 quarter final penalty shootout against France. Its time for revenge.

What about in 94 when "your" Azzuri were wearing blue for Baggio to miss that penalty?

I had a gut feeling which team wears blue for the final will win.

Italia it is :)

Amir - i was too young to watch that final, but i still have glimpses. 98 was even more painful.

I belive that all of the matches that France has won this world cup has been in their white jerseys (Like that really means anything). The rematch of Euro 2000 is gonna wicked.

In 1986, Italy wore blue and France wore white.

In 1998, Italy wore blue and France wore white.

In 2000, Italy wore white and France wore blue.

By the way, do you know why AZZURRO (light blue) is the colour of Italy?
