Four-time world champion Italy has failed to qualify for the football World Cup for the first time in 60 years, after drawing 0-0 against Sweden in Milan.

A solid Sweden held firm at the San Siro stadium on Monday night to qualify for next summer's tournament in Russia, with a 1-0 aggregate win in a hard-fought playoff.

Italy, a football-crazy country, has taken part in every World Cup since failing to qualify for the sport's most prestigious event in 1958.

Legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon announced his retirement, ending a 20-year international career that included winning the 2006 World Cup.
