A 0-0 draw with Sweden in the second leg of the European play-off round sealed their fate, after the Azzurri lost 1-0 in the first leg on Friday.
The Italian team is what’s also happening to the Argentine team, rubbish management and players who are long in the tooth.
Argentina qualified by luck that is spelled M.E.S.S.I. plus a rival team that was a joke. Otherwise they would be gone long ago as well.
Anyway, this could be a blessing in disguise for Italy.
