Italy's Defender Matteo Darmian is of Armenian Descent -
Matteo Darmian, the 24 year old defender of Italy’s national soccer team is of armenian descent.
Born in the northern Italian town of Legnano, he played for AC Milan, before making his first debut in a Coppa Italia match in November 2006.
His fortunes changed when Torino decided to sign him on a permanent deal. Earning a regular starting place as the 2012/13 season got under way, he established himself as one of the best full-backs in Serie A. A first choice also at every age level for Italy, Darmian caught the eye of Cesare Prandelli during another fine season with the Turin club and was invited to a national team training camp in March 2014, the prelude to his appearance in the coach’s 23-man list for Brazil 2014.
