Four-time champions Italy failed to reach the World Cup for the first time since 1958 after a play-off defeat against Sweden.

It means the Azzurri will not be present in the competition for only the second time in their history having declined to play at the inaugural tournament in 1930.

It is unfortunate and stupid how some weaklings will make it to a so called World Cup when power teams such as the USA and Italy have not made it.

It has been a bad couple days if you want to see goals scored in the playoffs. Heck even England and France played a friendly and *that* finished 0-0.

Well done Sweden. Go figure. No otherworldly talented goal scorer for the first time in a while (Larsson then Ibrahimovic) and they get back to the game's centerpiece event.

Can Denmark add to the Scandinavian revival?

Will Honduras make a return trip by stopping the Aussies?

Yeah, looks like that's a wrap. The home of Lego will be returning to the biggest stage.

Wasn't that long ago that people were pondering having 3 or 4 of the 'Home nations' represented in the World Cup. Now it's reduced to a solitary England yet again carrying the banner for the British Isles.

Playing against Nigeria, Sergio Aguero was taken to hospital after fainting in the dressing room at half-time.

Argentina lost 4-2 to Nigeria.
