Sweden and Italy gear up for World Cup playoff clash

The first one is Italy, whose recent struggles to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, which culminated in Friday night's 1-0 defeat to Sweden, may lead to an imminent sacking of current manager Giampiero Ventura.

Gianluigi Buffon fought back tears as he confirmed his retirement from worldwide football following Italy's shock failure to qualify for Russian Federation 2018.

There are two possible narratives as Italy prepare for their World Cup date with destiny against Sweden in Milan on tonight. "We've failed something which could have been big also on a social level and this is my only disappointment".

What has gone wrong for Italy as they gear up for do-or-die clash with Sweden? "We invite them to support us, but realize the time has come for us to show them what we've got".

The move came after Saudi Arabia intercepted a missile fired towards Riyadh, which it blamed on Tehran. The Houthis control most of northern Yemen, including the capital, Sanaa .

Despite the embarrassment of a botched campaign, Buffon refused to lay the blame on Ventura.

"Sport is about winning and losing together", Buffon said. I'd like to wish these lads all the very best of luck. "We are a proud, stubborn and hard-working nation and we always find a way of lifting ourselves up after bad falls".

While Pirlo acknowledges that the team "seemed frustrated", he insists that he is quietly confident of them getting through, saying: "I like this Italy". "Hugs to everyone, especially those I've shared this wonderful journey with".

The last time Sweden qualified for the finals of the World Cup was in 2006, when the tournament was hosted in Germany. He was injured in Italy's first game in 2010, then returned in 2014, but Italy failed to make it out of the group stage.
