OMG! ITALY IS OUT!!!! Oo

I feel sad for them but damn, the Swedish team fought for it! What a match!

What a disaster for the Italian team, though, it's the first time since 1958 that the team has to miss out a world cup. Italians must be devastated.

Wow that is indeed shocking. Much more shocking than NED, cause Italy actually has a strong set of players. Not enough obviously. Crazy thinking Iceland, Sweden, etc. made it but Italy didn't.

I kind of feel bad for Ireland but oh well, Denmark's stunning victory will be well-deserved

I was hoping for New Zealand to qualify but Peru made it in the end (which was likely to happen anyway xD). However, it's thr first time Peru qualified after 35 years. So I am somehow happy for them ;)

Australia is technically Asia (plays in the AFC). I'll be rooting for them, because they're the only one of the qualifiers who calls it soccer

Yeah but I thought it would be better to compile a list based on geography so that I don't have to split The Americas (especially since the US didn't qualify) and to place Australia in Asia feels so wrong. Socio-culturally and demographically speaking, it's basically European while it's totally Oceanian, geographically speaking.

Apart from Germany, I'll be rooting for Iceland and Poland ;)
