In the 2002 World Cup, Italy again had a difficult time. A comfortable 2–0 victory against Ecuador with two Christian Vieri goals was followed by a series of controversial matches. During the match against Croatia, two goals were disallowed resulting in a 2:1 defeat for Italy. Despite two goals being ruled for offside, a goal from Alessandro Del Piero help Italy to a 1–1 draw with Mexico proving enough to advance to the knockout stages.
However, co-host country South Korea eliminated Italy in the Round of 16 by a score of 2–1. The game was highly controversial with a goal being ruled out for offside and Totti being sent off for an alleged dive, as well as a questionable penalty being given to Korea in the first half, which was saved by Buffon.
