Sweden vs Italy
World Cup Qualifiers Second round, Game 1
tomorrow, 1:45 AM
Friends Arena, Solna
Italy virtually assured confirmed their progression as the winners of Group E after a late Eder winner against Sweden .Neither side appeared to break a sweat in the afternoon sunshine of Toulouse as the unadventurous Swedes appeared content to frustrate an Azzurri side that struggled to create. Marco Parolo’s late header hit the top of the crossbar in a game that produced few chances of real quality and rarely threatened to excite.
But in the 89th minute Eder popped up, driving at goal before unleashing a wonderful strike into the bottom corner and sending the Italian bench wild.Italy qualified for the last 16 with a game to spare after Eder’s brilliant late goal settled a forgettable match
No one in the Italy squad can imagine failing to qualify for the World Cup, not least Daniele De Rossi as he targets his fourth appearance at the summer finals.
The 34-year-old Roma midfielder is one of only two players in the Azzurri selection who will travel to Stockholm to face Sweden on Friday having already earned over 100 caps.
De Rossi will pass the recently-retired Andrea Pirlo in the all-time appearances list should he earn his 117th cap in the Swedish capital, but Gianluigi Buffon’s haul of 173 remains well out of reach.
The veteran Juvent
us goalkeeper will not want to sign off on an illustrious career with his national team following defeat to Sweden over two legs, and neither will De Rossi.
He told figc.it: “It would be great to be able to play at my fourth World Cup. It’s a tournament that no one wants to miss.
The Italians got a taste of how tenacious the Scandinavians can be when they squeezed past them 1-0 in a group game at Euro 2016, and now De Rossi can take comfort from the fact one of the danger men from that encounter is no longer available to Sweden boss Janne Andersson.
On Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who retired from international duty last year, De Rossi said: “I never want to play against him again, not even if he was 40 with a broken leg.”
There are doubts over Italy’s starting line-up at the Friends Arena as head coach Giampiero Ventura has seen his striking options dwindle over the last few days.
Lazio hotshot Ciro Immobile and Torino’s Andrea Belotti are not fully fit and on Thursday Simone Zaza of Valencia limped out of training after exacerbating a pre-existing knee injury. He will travel, though.
Sweden’s star in the post-Ibrahimovic era has been Emil Forsberg, the RB Leipzig winger who supplies ammunition to the likes of Marcus Berg and John Guidetti.
He is not among the six players – Andreas Granqvist, Victor Lindelof, Emil Krafth, Jakob Johansson, Martin Olsson and Jimmy Durmaz – risking suspension for the return leg at San Siro, yet head coach Andersson wants to prioritise discipline.
He told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet: “The players must absolutely not pick up any further bookings. It’s very important.
