Italy look to rebuild by winning 'Finalissima' as first step


May 31 (Reuters) - Italy will look to put the disappointment of failing to qualify for the World Cup behind them and kick-start a new era for the Azzurri by beating Argentina in the 'Finalissima', Italy players said on Tuesday. But Italy's joy turned to anguish eight months later when they failed to qualify for the World Cup for a second time running after losing in the playoffs to unheralded North Macedonia. "It's very rare in football to have this winning streak -- as we did and as Argentina is doing. Mancini said the match between the two teams -- who have won six World Cup titles between them -- is one of the "classic games of world football". "It will be a great match and it is a great tribute to many players, like Giorgio (Chiellini), who will leave the national team, and Argentinian players soon to leave the national team," he said.
