  • Sweden and Italy gear up for World Cup playoff clash

Gian Piero Ventura has reportedly announced his resignation from Italy's managerial role after a 0-0 draw against Sweden on Monday saw his side fail to qualify for the finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

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.

The Italians did not enter the first World Cup in 1930 but apart from the 1958 finals they have been ever-present.

"It's disappointing", Buffon told Rai Sport. We failed at something which also means something on a social level.

Italy's streak of 14 consecutive World Cup appearances is snapped. "We invite them to support us, but realize the time has come for us to show them what we've got".

High levels of lead found in fidget spinners
The fidget spinners in question are the brass and metal Fidget Wild Premium Spinners distributed by Bulls i Toy , says the U.S. On Target's website , the "Fidget Wild Premium Spinner Bass" is recommended for ages 14 and over, as well as, 6 and over.

It's make or break for the Azzurri tonight as they go into the pivotal qualifier 1-0 down against the Swedes.

Despite the embarrassment of a botched campaign, Buffon refused to lay the blame on Ventura.

He added: "We want to send Italians a message not with words, but with action on the pitch". Unfortunately, it wasn't enough, but I hope at least we can take some benefit out of this as an example. "Hugs to everyone, especially those I've shared this wonderful journey with".

"I leave a squad of talent that will have their say, including Gigio Donnarumma and Mattia Perin".

"There is still a future for our football". We weren't able to express ourselves at our best. They made the Round of 16 in both 2006 and 2002, but since it's been a barren run for the Scandinavian nation who were unable to qualify for 2010 in South Africa or 2014 in Brazil.
