Last night, in leg one of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying Play-off at Friends Arena in Sweden, Jakob Johansson’s 61st minute goal was enough to deal a disjointed Italy the 1-0 defeat.

Join Italian Football Daily’s own Patrick Stoll and Matthew Santangelo as they recap the Azzurri’s 1-0 loss last night, reflect on what went wrong, and explain how manager Gian Piero Ventura’s side can overcome the deficit and still ensure World Cup birth on Monday at the San Siro.
