2018 FIFA World Cup; Italy Fail To Qualify For First World Cup In 60 Years

Italy have failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia for the first time since 60years (1958 ) after a 0-0 draw with Sweden in the second leg of their playoff on Monday. The Swedes won 1-0 on aggregate.

Jakob Johansson's first-leg goal, which beat Italy's captain Gianluigi Buffon through a deflection, was enough to deny the Azzurri a World cup ticket on Monday evening. The Swedes are now back at the World Cup having missed out on the previous two tournaments in 2010 and 2014.
