My first thought, and a shame. Though not anything close to the best Italian teams, who the f*ck wants the dull pragmatism of Sweden instead? Certainly not England in their group.

Italy always add something to a World Cup. Shame.

The last time Italy weren't in a World Cup...

Nobody knew who The Beatles were

JFK was a junior senator

Palace had never played in the top flight

Harold Macmillan was PM

Some Like it Hot and Ben Hur had yet to be released

Coronation Street didn't exist

Buddy Holly was still alive

Muhammad Ali was 6 years away from first winning the heavyweight title

Italy’s the only big nation I’m not fussed about being absent from the World Cup. I want to see the best football possible, but unlike the others superpowers, they don’t play great football or have exciting flair in their side.

As a kid I really liked Italy due to Del Piero, great player. Going to be odd having a world cup without them.

Actually playing at the World Cup one last time would’ve been a proper farewell, not being a member of the first Italian team not to qualify in god knows how long. Wouldn’t say “worried” either, he’s just the only Italian I care somewhat about.

Not sure anyone's actually worried about him, but it is a shame not to have him and Italy at the WC. Big loss to the competition.

From my earlier years of watching Football Italia, Italy have always been the team I will back when inevitably England get ousted from the competition.

Having Sweden at the world cup doesnt really seem to add much, unless they have Zlatan in the team.

I agree. Same with the Dutch for me - usually enjoy watching them both.

The irony being I have liked Italy and their national team since 1994... Why? Because England didn't qualify for the World Cup and that is who I wanted to win instead.

Not a great day but they will rise again. The coach was well out of his depth. My Italian friend hates him, said he is the worst thing to happen to the national team long before last night.

According to somebody on talk sport England were the team who benefitted, so it could have been us in this position

Also if you play 10 substitutes then it doesn't count as a proper match for co-efficient points which is what Italy should have done more often.

So yes it was Italy's fault or more exactly the Italian FA's fault and having a poor team / coach

I don't necessarily think the team is that bad. It's just old and they don't really have a style of play or formation. They have very good players but Ventura never really got a settled team and bizarrely never played Insigne who has been on form for ages.

Fantastic player though he is, i wouldn’t pick him - they finally qualify once he’s gone.

It’s funny really, the IPL in the mid 90s to early 00s had the chance to become what the EPL now today is.

Now you wouldn’t even watch it even if it reappeared on free to air tv.
