Pray for Italy: Twitter goes crazy as Azzurri fail to make Russia

Italy will play no part in next summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia following a 1-0 aggregate defeat to Sweden.

The Azzurri were unable to overturn a slim one-goal deficit at the San Siro on Monday evening.

It will be the first time the four-time champions will miss the showpiece since 1958.

As you would expect, soccer enthusiasts, some of whom prominent personalities, didn’t take their shocking exit in good fate.
