  • Giampiero Ventura and Italy must win at the San Siro

Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time in 60 years after being held to a 0-0 home draw on Monday by a defiant Sweden, who booked a place at next year's finals in Russian Federation with a 1-0 aggregate win.

Corriere also claims that Luka Modric could be a key negotiator in this situation: the midfielder, who played under Ancelotti at Real Madrid, could pull some strings to convince him to opt for Croatia instead of Italy.

Sweden survived wave after wave of Italian attacks at the San Siro. I thank the lads who were with us and, although it wasn't enough, I hope that we gave them something. Gian Piero Ventura will surely need to make some modifications to his lineup after such a poor performance in Stockholm.

The Croatian football federation seems to have approached Ancelotti for the same reasons as Italy, as the team face equal hard times.

However, the latest reports suggest that he is now being courted by two national teams who would largely benefit from his arrival. "We invite them to support us, but realize the time has come for us to show them what we've got".
