Sweden and Italy gear up for World Cup playoff clash

"The San Siro doesn't score, I've never seen a fan score", said Pirlo, a member of the 2006 World Cup-winning team who announced last week he was retiring from football.

The first is that the four-time world champions fail to qualify for Russian Federation 2018 and a curtain falls on the worldwide careers of half the team, including Daniele De Rossi, Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci and the icon that is Gianluigi Buffon.
