Ancelotti Mancini & the Italy head coach candidates to replace disastrous Ventura

Sweden won the first leg of the match with a 1-0 victory on Friday and then secured their place in Russian Federation next summer with a 0-0 draw on Monday.

The four-time winners, a regular fixture at the tournament since missing their last one in 1958, could not get past Sweden in the qualifiers.

Sweden's top scorer should be available again for Man United in the new year and a return to his goalscoring form of last season could see Zlatan angling for a place at the World Cup.

"Guys, we didn't lose the World Cup today [Monday]". I have to evaluate an infinity of things. After the match, he said: "I have not resigned because I haven't spoken to the president yet. Congratulations to the national team!" he wrote on Facebook.

"It is really very sad because watching the World Cup was something that really brought us together as Italians", said recent graduate Stefania Pusateri, heading for the exit after watching the match in a Rome bar.

Giampiero Ventura, the Italy head coach, resigned after the final whistle but only after his decisions provoked a protest from one of the Azzurri's most-experienced worldwide players.

"We have this tendency to warm up three at a time, then after five minutes we change and another three go", the 36-year-old said.

Ventura, 69, is under contract until 2020.

With Italy searching for a vital goal, television cameras captured a member of Ventura's backroom staff telling De Rossi to warm up.

Buffon even came up for two corners in a final desperate gamble but Italy fell desperately short, leading to damning headlines in the Italian press.

Failure to qualify has heaped pressure on Italy boss Gian Piero Ventura, with the sport daily Corriere dello Sport calling for him to step down, while the headline in La Gazzetta dello Sport read "Italy, this is the apocalypse".
