  • The Crystal Palace boss was present as Sweden beat Italy 1-0 in World Cup play-off first leg

Sweden won the first leg of the match with a 1-0 victory on Friday and then secured their place in Russian Federation next summer with a 0-0 draw on Monday.

You can listen to Italy v Sweden in the World Cup play-off second leg live on talkSPORT2, on Monday, November 13 from 19:45.

A 1-0 win in the first leg meant Sweden won the fixture on aggregate, and Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol tweeted after the result that Ventura was no longer at the helm. "We've failed something which could have been big also on a social level and this is my only disappointment".

The Italian media has largely placed the blame for a poor qualifying campaign and dismal play-off attempt at the door of head coach Ventura, who was under contract until 2020.

"We knew it was going to be a tough game and in the end, it was decided on an incident".

"Sport is about winning and losing together", Buffon said.

"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". I thank the lads who were with us and, although it wasn't enough, I hope that we gave them something. I want to give a hug to Chiello, Barza, Leo and Lele, who I had nearly 10 years alongside. We weren't able to express ourselves at our best.

Gianluigi Buffon appears to have confirmed that his Italy career is over following the nation's failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

For Sweden, they will be making a return to the World Cup after missing out in the 2010 and 2014 editions in South Africa and Brazil respectively.
