A world cup without Italy or Holland in it was just unthinkable when I was growing up, whats going on?

I feel so much for Gigi. The Azzurri are my “second” national team as my grandma is 100% Italian and they won the WC on the day I was baptized. He deserved much better than this. Congrats to Sweden though

Italy no longer have players of flair in their side, greats like Pirlo have retired and they are going to have to reassemble like Holland will have to.

The Libero and total football must be outdated concepts now. Not enough emphasis on playing without the ball perhaps.

Just to remember the last time Italy failed to qualify England played a qualifier in Wolverhampton.

While Italian clubs were buying in top talents like John Charles.

The Italian skipper Boniparte of that time still has legendary status.

It still pisses me off that we got robbed by the Dutch, when Koeman should have been sent off, but the cheating ref, failed to do his job, and he scored to knock out England, for USA 94. Still, probably a blessing in disguise, as I don't imagine the locals in down town Compton would have taken kindly to beer swilling Brits, hanging their St George flags around the neighbourhood.
