For only the second time in their history,the Italian senior football team known famously as the Azzuris will not participate at the World Cup scheduled to hold in Russia in the summer of 2018. Following the two-legged playoff with Sweden,the Azzuris fell 1-0 to Sweden in Stockholm and were held to a goalless draw by the Swedes at the famous San Siro in Milan. What a pity the four-time champions would not be at the global football showpiece in Russia.
Quite sad that Italy will be missing in Russia,while minnows like Iceland would feature.Ironic and pitiable. Adieu Azzuris!!! How are the mighty fallen!!! Tell it not in Moscow none in Stockholm. Effectively this game against Sweden now goes down as the last international game ever for their iconic goalkeeper-Gigi Buffon!
