Italy - Lega Nazionale Serie B (National League Second Division) - Results


Serie B was, until July 2010, the Second Division of the “Lega Nazionale Professionisti” (National League of Professionals). In July 2010, the “Lega Nazionale Professionisti” was divided into two separate bodies: the “Lega Nazionale Professionisti Serie A” and the “Lega Nazionale Professionisti Serie B”.

For the sake of simplicity, the Serie B Selection (i.e. “Italy Lega Nazionale-Serie B XI”) is denoted below as “Italy”, with the only addition (wherever applicable) of the relevant age restriction.

The Selection fielded only Italian players.
