    Four-time football world champion Italy will miss out on the World Cup for the first time in 60 years.

    After a one-nil defeat to Sweden in Milan on Monday, the 2006 winners missed their chance to go to Russia next year.

    One Italian newspaper described the result as "apocalyptic."

    Italy dominated the second leg and had more than 20 shots on goal, but could not seem to find the net against Sweden, who had already helped eliminate the Netherlands.
