The Azzurri drew Sweden, 0-0, on Monday in their UEFA World Cup qualifying second leg at the San Siro, but the result was good enough for the Swedes to reach Russian Federation in 2018 after coming away with a 1-0 victory in the first leg.
Daniele de Rossi has admitted that he angrily protested against his manager's decision not bring on unused substitute Lorenzo Insigne as Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1958.
The four-time World Cup winners had to win but failed before a sell-out crowd at the San Siro stadium in Milan on Monday, November 13, against Sweden to book a place in the final.

The Italy players, who along with their 69-year-old coach Gian Piero Ventura, are likely to face long inquests, collapsed onto the pitch in despair at the final whistle and even veterans such as Giorgio Chiellini were inconsolable.
Ventura had made changes from Friday's defeat with Brazil-born Jorginho making his Italy debut and Alessandro Florenzi and Manolo Gabbiadini also handed starts, although Napoli's in-form winger Lorenzo Insigne was again left on the bench. "I just thought perhaps it was better that Insigne come on instead".
"Wasted chances, a bit of bad luck but zero goals in 180 minutes against the Swedes, who will go to Russia", Gazzetta commented.
