Italy also played the Qualifications of 1972 Olympic Games (two Matches versus E.Germany) and 
of 1980 Olympic Games (two Matches versus Greece, two Matches versus Yugoslavia and two Matches
versus Turkey).
Because Italy fielded, in those occasions, the Under 21 Team, above Matches are listed in 
“Italy Under 21” Section.


1.The eight Matches of 1936, 1948 and 1952 Olympic Games are considered as full “A” International 
  by FIGC (Italian FA). 
  Officially, those Teams were composed of “Students”; only few players (nobody, in 1936) had been
  previously fielded in “A” Matches.
2.Italy won 1936 Olympic Games, 1959, 1963 and 1967 Mediterranean Games (the latter one “ex-aequo”
  with France). 
3.Italy won the Qualifications of 1964 Olympic Games, but were disqualified by the Olympic Committee,
  for professionalism.

C. Age’s Restriction Era

It starts from 1992 Olympic Games. 
The main Rule is that each Squad must be composed of “Under 23” players, with a maximum
of three (3) over aged players.   

Because the “UEFA Under 21 Championship” also doubles as “Olympic Qualifying Tournament”,
the Matches played by Italy in 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games are listed in 
“Italy Under 21” Section.
In 2012, Italy did not reach the Qualification to the Olympic Games.
