Italian manager Gian Piero Ventura was forced into finally playing Jorginho from the start thanks to Marco Veratti's suspension, and the Napoli man was one of the only bright spots on the night for an Italy side which has consistently struggled for creativity in a tough qualifying campaign. We failed at something which also means something on a social level.

Buffon felt that luck had not gone Italy's way, but he said that they could have no excuses. "There are another 90 minutes and we want to make the most of it". I'd like to wish these lads all the very best of luck. "Hugs to everyone, especially those I've shared this wonderful journey with".

"I leave behind a national team who have got quality and will have people talking about them, from Gigio Donnarumma to [Mattia] Perin - I'm sure they will ensure I am not missed. We are a proud, stubborn and hard-working nation and we always find a way of lifting ourselves up after bad falls".

The last time Sweden qualified for the finals of the World Cup was in 2006, when the tournament was hosted in Germany.
