    We’re they missing players? That was a shockingly bad Italian side.

    Belotti was out for Gabbiadini..they had who I thought was a RWB florenzi in CM..
    I'd probably throw Insigne into the team somewhere too. Other than that can't see a lot missing.

    Still won’t be the same without them. Not looking forward to this World Cup at all tbh.

    Same. I'd prefer to see Italy there, than Sweden. The only time I can remember an entertaining Swedish side was USA 94-Italy may not be everyone's cup of tea, because of their style of play, but when they do it well, they do it brilliantly.

    The more good sides out, the better chance the shite sides have of advancing.

    Given that Sweden deserve to be there ahead of Italy, how can you suggest that gives a shite side more chance of advancing? Are you basing your good side/shite side on teams' historic performances?

    I've not seen all the teams yet not paid much attention to who's got there so far.
    Not getting too excited about it in all honesty. Will soon change in the summer when the beers flowing and I want an afternoon of work I suppose...

    Italy have a knack of getting results in big tournaments. They also seem to get the "rub of the green".
    The context of my use of the word "shite" was with England in mind.
    With sides of the pedigree of Italy not making it, the lesser sides (e.g. England) have a better chance of progression.

    It is a shame that Italy will not be at the finals and IMO the majority of people over the world would prefer to see top players on the world stage.

    No doubt Sweden have qualified on merit and good luck to them.

    Italy obviously haven't got any top players, otherwise they would have qualified. Sweden are there on merit and deserve it. To qualify out of that group is a major achievement. Theres a lot of 'snobbery' about regarding the so called major teams like Italy who have no divine right to appear at the World Cup. The competition will be all the better for them not being there with their dull, boring, time wasting and diving type of game.

    If Italy are so great, how come they have an Immobile striker? Christ, we had Kenwyne Jones...

    I'll miss them at the finals, but it was nice seeing them knocked out.
