Hard luck Italy, failed to qualify for WC2018 in 60 years

What a sad day for Football fans all around the World watching the #Legend Buffon for the last time in Italy national football team colors.
Sweden Beat Italy 1-0 on aggregate to reach the finals of FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia.
The team with 2nd most World Cup Trophies failed on a big day. Italy has won 4 World Cups, 1932, 1934, 1982 & 2006 in more recent times.
An emotional and surely not deserved farewell for Gianluigi Buffon.
Good Bye Legend.

Jakob Johansson’s first-leg goal, which beat Gianluigi Buffon via a deflection, was enough to settle 120 minutes of action despite a dominant performance from the Azzurri in Milan on Monday evening.

The hosts enjoyed almost 75 percent possession and peppered the Sweden goal with 17 shots but failed to properly test Robin Olsen between the posts as poor finishing let Giampiero Ventura’s side down.

It could have been worse for Italy, as Sweden was denied what looked like two clear-cut penalties for handballs, first from Matteo Darmian and then from Andrea Barzagli.
