World Champion nation Italy has failed to have one player make it into FIFA's team of 2008. The Serie A had only one representative with AC Milan's Brazilian star Kaka making it into the team.

The team selected was:

Goalkeeper: Iker Casillas Defenders: Sergio Ramos, John Terry, Carles Puyol, Phillip Lahm Midfielders: Kaka, Steven Gerrard, Xavi, Franck Ribery Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi
