Italy trailed Sweden 1-0 on aggregate ahead of their second-leg match at the San Siro and over 90 nerve-racking minutes again failed to score against their opponents.

Sweden coach Jan Andersson admitted that his side had to cling on against technically superior opponents.

Honduras and Australia will play off in Sydney on Wednesday after a 0-0 draw in the first leg of their tie, while two-legged clashes between Ireland and Denmark and Peru and New Zealand lie identically poised after their respective first legs. Gian Piero Ventura will surely need to make some modifications to his lineup after such a poor performance in Stockholm.

Sweden recorded a memorable victory over Italy on Friday with a one-goal advantage into the second leg at the San Siro!

After the match, their veteran 39-year-old goalkeeper Buffon confirmed his global retirement and also apologised for his team's failure.

However, the latest reports suggest that he is now being courted by two national teams who would largely benefit from his arrival. Emil Forsberg proved to be the Nordic team's best player throughout the first round of the qualifiers and was the clear standout in the first leg. "The only thing that I would have would be a personal satisfaction, but in the wider scheme of things, I am irrelevant". "We invite them to support us, but realize the time has come for us to show them what we've got".
