Italy sacks Ventura after World Cup failure

Posted November 16, 2017

The four-times world champions were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Sweden in the second leg of their European playoff on Monday, losing 1-0 on aggregate, and will miss the finals for the first time since 1958.

Ventura was widely criticised for his tactics and team selection, but many say root and branch reform is needed to get Italy back to the pinnacle of world football. In terms of the coach I think Mourinho is the right one.

But there is one familiar name who could take more responsibility than anyone else. former Swansea flop Eder.

He took charge in July 2016, succeeding Antonio Conte, and guided Italy to second place behind Spain in its World Cup qualification group.

"I lost only two games in two years", he told Italian television show Le Iene before the Italian Football Federation fired him on Wednesday.

Australia's e-Safety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant said Facebook is not storing the images, but only a digital footprint of them. In April it added the option for users to report pictures or video they are concerned have been shared without consent.

"I'm being provocative saying Mourinho, but I'd like someone like Mancini - in short, an important coach who also trains a club".

Former Italy worldwide Gianfranco Zola says it is necessary to replace Ventura.

"That would be the easiest solution, if it were possible", Ulivieri said. It's a pity because he's a good coach, he really gets his teams playing good football but in this case, unfortunately as a national team coach, you can not get the amount of time that is necessary to develop his football.

"We would love to have him back in Italy, of course, because he is a great coach".

Referring to his belief that federation president Carlo Tavecchio should also go, Tommasi said: "We believe we've got to start the rebuilding process with elections".
