At the 2002 World Cup, he was credited with holding the defence together almost single-handedly after Alessandro Nesta was injured against Croatia. This injury, alongside several errors by match officials, dealt a severe blow to Italy's chances of winning the World Cup; the side having relied heavily on the Cannavaro-Nesta partnership in central defence. Marco Materazzi, who deputized for Nesta, put in performances that were below his usual standards and Italy went out in the second round, losing to co-hosts and eventual semi-finalists South Korea, once again to a golden goal.
Cannavaro had a hard act to follow when he took over as captain from Maldini after the 2002 World Cup, but he quickly won the team over with his constant smile, laid-back Neapolitan approach and inspirational performances. After Maldini's international retirement, he first captained Italy in a match in Naples and received a standing ovation on the pitch where he wore the local side's colours.
Cannavaro's first international goal was scored on 30 May 2004 against Tunisia; with Italy winning 4–0. Euro 2004, which was hosted by Portugal, turned out to be a disappointment. Cannavaro picked up yellow cards during the two draws with Denmark (0–0) and Sweden (1–1), forcing him to sit out the final group game. Italy defeated Bulgaria 2–1, but failed to advance on goal difference.
