Sweden and Italy gear up for World Cup playoff clash

Giampiero Ventura and Italy must win at the San Siro

The 27-year-old's second-half strike means Sweden travel to Italy on Monday with the advantage ahead of the all-important second leg at the San Siro.

The Azzurri suffered a 1-0 first-leg defeat and are under pressure to turn around the tie, in what could be Gianluigi Buffon's final competitive fixture for the national team.

Italy are set to face-off against Sweden tonight, in a match which the Italians will have to win by an advantage of at least two goals over their opponents if they are to qualify for the World Cup, due to be held next year in Russian Federation.

"The pressure is all on them", said the former Genoa player.

Sweden coach Janne Andersson said determination was strong despite Hamburg midfielder Albin Ekdal and defender Johan Larsson absent because of knocks. Obviously, if we score an away goal, we'll have an even better chance of going through.

Alex Anthopoulos to be next GM of Atlanta Braves, report says
The high-energy, 40-year-old baseball executive rejected a five-year extension with the Blue Jays at the end of the 2016 season. Anthopolous was a scout with the Expos and Blue Jays before becoming one of baseball's youngest-ever GMs.


"We analyzed the things that went well and others that did not go so well".

There are two possible narratives as Italy prepare for their World Cup date with destiny against Sweden in Milan on tonight.

He told the Croydon Advertiser: "Wherever I play is wherever I play, I don't have any arguments where I play at Palace". Italy are meanwhile superstars having won the competition four times - 1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006 - and lost two finals in 1970 and 1994. The team has been out of World Cup only twice - in 1930, the first-ever World Cup when they did not enter, and in 1958. "There are another 90 minutes and we want to make the most of it".

"It is certainly a moment of high tension, considering what is at stake and the sense of responsibility each of us must bear", said Buffon, who will earn his 175th cap in the San Siro. We invite them to support us, but realise the time has come for us to show them what we've got.
