Italy are world champions after beating France 5-3 in a penalty shoot-out after a 1-1 draw in Berlin. Several members of the happy Italian squad - Buffon, Cannavaro, Del Piero, Gattuso, Toni, Gilardino, Peruzzi, Nesta, Camoranesi, Inzaghi, Zambrotta, Pirlo and Oddo - are drawn from the four clubs - Juventus, Lazio, Fiorentina and AC Milan - implicated in the match-fixing scandal and they face the possibility of being relegated from Serie A. Tonight they celebrate winning Italy's World Cup victory; next Friday they might be looking for new employers... That could make the World Cup win seem a distant memory...
