Rome, 9 November 2017 (MIA) - One of Italy's best defenders Leonardo Bonucci says a World Cup without the "azzurri" is not an option for him and his teammates.
Italy plays Sweden in the playoffs for the 2018 World Cup in Russia on Friday.
"The play-off against Sweden presents two very difficult games against what is a very strong team, as shown in the group stage when they beat the Netherlands. It’ll be tough. But we’re Italy, and missing out on the World Cup is not an option. It’s a team that has made up for losing one of its best ever players, in Zlatan Ibrahimovic, by staying compact and looking to surprise the opposition. They’re not going to sit back, they fight for every ball", says Bonucci. ik/09:01
