Swedish players joy erupts as World Cup spot secured in Italy

Swedish players joy erupts as World Cup spot secured in Italy

Losing the first leg 1-0 in Stockholm last week, many would've backed Italy to overcome Sweden in a packed San Siro Stadium in Milan on Monday night.

Another footballing giant has missed out on next summer's World Cup, and this time it is four-time world champions Italy. All I know is we're out of the World Cup.

He follows another legendary Italy and Juventus goalkeeper, Dino Zoff, who also departed the worldwide scene after a defeat to Sweden.

But Ventura made no announcement about his position despite failing to lead the 1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006 winners to their 19th World Cup. I have to evaluate an infinity of things.

"It's a very heavy result to bear, because I was absolutely convinced that we had this ferocious desire to overcome the obstacle". "Congratulations to the national team!" he wrote on Facebook.

"I said to the lads in the dressing room that if we got to the World Cup they could shave it off". Let us return to being the Italy that the entire world envied!

Italy's players collapsed onto the pitch in despair as the final whistle went and even veterans such as Giorgio Chiellini were inconsolable.

The Juventus captain, who has already said he will likely retire from all football at the end of this season, said Italy fans still have plenty to look forward to, with AC Milan's 18-year-old 'keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma set to take the global number one shirt.

It was a huge ask of the Brazil-born player who had not previously played a competitive game for Italy.

"This is incredible! This player has just stopped to play with Sweden one year and a half ago and we are still here talking about him", Andersson said. "At the time I just thought perhaps it was better that Insigne come on instead".

"Italy, this is the apocalypse", ran a headline on the website of sports daily Gazzetta dello Sport.
