Zlatan reacts to Sweden World Cup qualification in most Zlatan way ever

After the game, midfielder Daniele De Rossi and defenders Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli announced they would be retiring from worldwide competition - joining goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, who previously said he would do so after the World Cup.

Despite their efforts, a Swedish shut-out sent the Scandinavians to Russian Federation and left the Italian players in tears, with veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon emotionally announcing the end of his 175-cap career nearly immediately after the final whistle blew. After the match, he said: "I have not resigned because I haven't spoken to the president yet". Resignation? I have to evaluate an infinity of issues. "I'm proud to have met you and to have faced you many times". I am a bit moved but obviously very happy with the result.

"Guys, we didn't lose the World Cup today [Monday]. He is 54 years old and he has never had to go through something like this". Let us return to being the Italy that the entire world envied!

Italy's players collapsed onto the pitch in despair as the final whistle went and even veterans such as Giorgio Chiellini were inconsolable.

Every four years, Italy has come together over the World Cup, putting aside its historic city-state rivalries to become a united nation for a brief moment in time, cheering on all the players regardless if they came from Milan, Rome or Naples.

"Those who've played know how hard these matches are".

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.

As the clock ticked down, De Rossi was asked by Ventura to warm up but he pointed at Insigne instead.

"I thank the lads who were us and, although it wasn't enough, I hope that we gave them something". "I pointed to Insigne too".

"Italy, this is the apocalypse", ran a headline on the website of sports daily Gazzetta dello Sport.

"It is an intolerable football shame, an indelible stain", the newspaper said.
