Italian World Cup winner Iaquinta faces jail over arms, mafia link

Rome, Italy: Prosecutors are seeking a six-year prison sentence for Italy's 2006 World Cup winner Vincenzo Iaquinta on charges of arms possession and links with the Calabrian mafia, daily Corriere dello Sport reported on Thursday.

Over 140 individuals are being tried in a wide-ranging investigation into the Ndrangheta mafia group including the player's father, who faces up to ten years in jail himself.

The former Juventus striker played in five of Italy's seven games during the World Cup-winning campaign in Germany in 2006.
