Italy 1990 player shirt by Diadora believed to have been match worn by Berti in the 1990 World Cup Third Place match against England played at the Stadio San Nicola, Bari on the 7th July '90.
The hosts did not want to be playing this game, they had hoped and dreamed for four years about playing on the 8th July at the Stadio Olimpico but Diego Maradona's Argentina had heartbroken a nation in an epic Semi Final penalty shoot-out.
The Azzurri picked themselves up and delivered a win here though to end the tournament on a high. Three stars of Italia '90 were all on the scoresheet, Roberto Baggio finally broke the deadlock in the 71st minute, David Platt got the equaliser before Salvatore Schillaci sealed the golden boot with his 6th goal of the Final's from the penalty spot in the 86th minute. Berti joined the action midway through the second half for De Agostini and had a late goal which would have made it three ruled out for offside. The midfield dynamo featured in four of the team's matches at the tournament and picked up a runners-up medal too four years later, representing Italy 39 times in total.
