    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Sweden goalkeeper Robin Olsen kicks his free-kick straight out of touch! Nerves? Italy send everyone up now. May as well.

    Ugly clearance, corner, BUFFON UP!



    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    ANOTHER penalty appeal waved away for handball. I've never seen so many appeals. That didn't look like one at real speed as Federico Bernardeschi mows his man down and is booked.


    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Where has he dragged five minutes from?!

    Brainless from Andrea Barzagli, blocking off his man on halfway. Free-kick for Sweden and they can take as long as they want.

    LAST MINUTE. Time for heroes...

    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Just Gigi Buffon in his half, 21 other men in a 35-yard square at one end of the San Siro. Sweden have a throw in. TIME!

  7. CLOSE!

    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Italy basically have eight or nine men forwards now and Marco Parolo leaps brilliantly to meet a cross - but floats his header wide!

    Save of the night! Crisp hit from Stephan El Shaarawy, 22 yards out and absolutely off the middle of his boot, really well hit and Robin Olsen pushes it away!

  9. Post update

    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Tired legs, tired minds out there now. For all of their possession Italy have landed four efforts on target, as Andrea Belotti shoots wide from long range. The table doesn't lie in the league, and these play-offs don't tend to lie either. Italy don't deserve to go through as it stands.

  10. Post update

    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    SIX MINUTES left.

    Anywhere will do for Sweden as Emil Forsberg hacks an ugly clearance away. This is all very un-Italy. In the mixer.

    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Eight minutes left. Italy are going to miss the World Cup for the first time since we had parking meters in the UK.

    Chance! Robin Olsen has to be alert to push away a dipping header. Routine enough.

    The San Siro is really quiet. This is stress.

  12. Post update

    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Sweden have a break, Sweden waste another break. Marcus Berg's header across goal is a smart one but Leo Bonucci clears it brilliantly and Berg's volley is tired and wasteful.

    Ten minutes to go!

    Sweden's Marcus Berg

    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Another appeal waved away as Ciro Immobile goes down - that was 90% desperation though. I think this referee set his stall out a long time ago when it comes to giving pens. He's not having it.


    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    This is bordering on the unforgivable I'm afraid. He's made his final change - and it's Federico Bernardeschi, not Lorenzo Insigne.

    That could be Giampiero Ventura's Lineker/Smith sub...

    Alessandro Florenzi shoots over.

  15. Post update

    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Almost an air of resignation inside the stadium now. The atmosphere has been sucked out of it. Italy are having all of the ball but they are yet to build up a head of steam in the second half. Still Lorenzo Insigne sits on the bench...

  16. Say it ain't so

    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Daniella Matar: The saddest thing about this #ItalySweden match is that it looks like Buffon is playing the final 20 minutes of his #Italy career

    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Marcus Rohden is on for Sweden - fresh legs up top. Maybe he can add that composure they need to seal the deal.

  18. Post update

    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Italy are bound to leave some space at the back now and Sweden have a chance to counter. Not for the first time they make a real mess of it. They had four men up and the best they could muster is a scuffed pass into the run of Emil Forsberg, whose shot was easily charged down.

    A bit of pace and composure and Sweden could have ended this one by now.


    Italy 0-0 Sweden (Agg 0-1)

    Another booking, sub Isaac Kiese Thelin in the book for a raised arm on Leo Bonucci. We'll do well to get through the 90/120 minutes without a red.

    I make that six bookings now.
