On Monday night, Italy became another big nation that will miss out on playing in next year's FIFA World Cup, and their failure to qualify sees them add to the list of big names who won't play in the tournament. Can you think of any?
The Azzurri's 1-0 aggregate loss to Sweden means that Gianluigi Buffon was denied a sixth straight World Cup appearance, something most of the footballing world feels deeply sad about.
However, he is not the only big name to miss the competition – Arjen Robben also fits into that category after Holland failed to qualify for their second consecutive major tournament in two years, the first being Euro 2016.
In addition, Arturo Vidal and Alexis Sanchez of Chile will also miss out on the showpiece after suffering an elimination at the hands of Brazil, while Borussia Dortmund's Christian Pulisic won't be able to showcase his skills for the USA in Russia.
