Whether or not our interest has continued into adulthood, there's a generation of football supporters in England with a disproportionately affectionate nostalgia for Serie A, the storied and celebrated top flight of Italian football. This week's Football Fives Podcast is for them. (Us.)

Our 65th episode brings back the occasional Fives format, in which we each create a five-a-side team from a finite category of players and combine them into the ultimate this Fives or that Fives. We've done international teams. We've done fictional football. We've done punditry. Now, for the first time, we're embracing an entire league.

Of course, a league with Serie A's richness of history is too wide a category. So Daniel Storey, David Hartrick, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee are picking from the big but not-quite-so-big group of foreign imports who've made Italian football their own. Serie A foreigners? It's as bloody difficult a choice as it sounds.
