    The official set of photos included shots of the players relaxing and gathering before the shoot. Just doing *footballer* things, y'know.

    Some of the photos of the team caught the attention of Japanese Twitter users, where they've now become the source of major thirst. Much love was given to the suited-up team.

    "The Italian national team is cheating, all suited up."

    "I guess they're cheating because they're too handsome? Lol"

    "Suuuuper handsome. They're too cool. I admire them."

    Luckily for the team's new fans, there will be plenty of time for appreciation of them when the Euros begin this weekend.
