Held a draw for play-off matches of the qualifying tournament of world championship – 2018. Italy, being in the seeded group, received rivals the strongest of naseyani teams, the national team of Sweden.

Listen to the first coach, which soon will play permits on the world Cup.

coach Janne Andersson of Sweden:

- Ahead of two very tough match. However, with other players it would also. I'm glad that I finally learned opponent. Already you can begin to plan training. I haven't really thought about Italy. But Italian soccer is historically good. This is a good, experienced team. It will be difficult.

the Main Italy coach Giampiero Ventura:

- Going to play a very strong opponent that deserve the maximum of respect. They defeated France in Stockholm and finished above Holland. We will prepare for the two November matches with determination and confidence. Nobody even thinks that we may not get to Russia.

the Teams met 12 times between them, and half of the matches won the "squadra Azzurra", the "tre kronor" won 4 times, and two matches ended in a draw. Three times the teams played in the qualifying tournaments for Euro in the same group. In the matches for Euro 1972 the Italians confidently won at home with 3:0 and ended in a goalless draw offering the match. In UEFA Euro 1984, the Swedes have arranged a complete embarrassment to the Italians, winning in the Apennines – 3:0 and at home – 2:0. In UEFA Euro 1988, the teams exchanged home victories: 2:1 in Italy and 1:0 in Sweden. In the final tournaments of the world Championships the teams have met twice and it was a very long time. In 1950, the Swedes won 3:2, and in 1970, on the soccer fields of Mexico, the "squadra Azzurra" took revenge – 1:0. In the final tournaments of the European Championships, the teams have met 3 times. In 2000, the Italians have won – 2:1 (goals: Luigi Di Biagio and Alessandro Del Piero), in 2004, played a draw – 1:1 (Antonio Cassano), but in the most recent match of Euro 2016 team of Antonio Conte pulled out a victory – 1:0, thanks to goal from Eder. Again the teams played a friendly match in 2009, which the Italians won 1:0.

But it has statistics, and now on the football field will leave other players with their ambitions and I think it will be very interesting!

the First match between Sweden and Italy will be held November 10 in Stockholm, the second leg takes place on 13 November in Milan.

Our portal will inform about the preparation of the Italian national team for the upcoming matches, and the matches of the playoffs.
