World Cup News – Historic Defeat For Italy

Posted November 14, 2017 | By Jimena @ Betting Gods

We all know Italy is one of the most passionate countries when it comes to football, so we are pretty sure they are under national grief this morning, since Sweden took them out of the World Cup 2018, being the first time they will miss the a World Cup since 1958.

Dragging a 1-0 from last Friday’s first leg in Stockholm, they weren’t able to turn it around last night, as Sweden did a great job deserving their place in the World Cup.

Contradictory feelings were present as the Swedish team celebrated and the Azzurris looked inconsolable. One of the most affected players from the Italian team was goal keeper Buffon who said:

“I’m not sorry for myself but all of Italian football. We failed at something which also means something on a social level. There’s regret at finishing like that.”

“In football you win as a group, you lose as a group, you divide the credit and the blame. The coach is part of this entire group.”

Congratulation to the Blågult, for doing a great job starting in pot 3, beating France from pot 2, knocked out Netherlands from pot 1 and then winning over Italy.

For sure the World Cup 2018 will be full of surprises!
