Here we have the closing moments of ITV's coverage of Italia'90 and while we have all the usual trophy lifting and celebration, there is so much more to this video.

Diego's tears are good (or bad depending on your viewpoint...), an interview with a frustrated Bobby Robson and already media-savvy Gary Lineker is absolutely fascinating as clearly both felt they could and maybe should have won it, a closing ceremony involving flares and women with Italian landmarks as hats is exactly that, and finally we have rare sightings of Brian Moore, Ron Atkinson, Jimmy Greaves, Elton Welsby, Nick Owen and a terrific closing montage set to the nowhere-near-as-good-as-Nessun-Dorma ITV 1990 World Cup theme.
