Italy misses 2018 World Cup qualifiers

It is quite a big surprise to see Italy not qualify for the World Cup soccer in 2018. While always entertaining, sometimes teams overestimate their ability to be guaranteed a berth. Being 4-time World Cup winners  should mean it is a formality but great to see that the level rises to stop competitions being dominated by a select few. Think of the Japanese Blossoms beating the Sth African Springboks back in the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Be complacent at your peril.
