World Cup without Italy would be a 'disaster', says Low

Giampiero Ventura and Italy must win at the San Siro

A place at the 2018 World Cup is up for grabs tonight (7.45pm) when Italy and Sweden lock horns at the San Siro, live on Sky Sports 1.

Coach Ventura is under vast pressure and will nearly certainly lose his job should Italy fail, while some are even expecting him to be sacked regardless of Monday's result, with Carlo Ancelotti waiting in the wings.

"They developed well and have good individual players".

Italy are FIFA World Cup superstars having won the competition four times - 1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006 - played two finals in 1970 and 1994 and finished third in 1990. "We have nothing to lose and we will go onto the pitch to give a great performance". Obviously, if we score an away goal, we'll have an even better chance of going through.

"It will be tough for coach Gian Piero Ventura to find the right words to say to the group".

"We must be confident in the return leg, otherwise we have already lost".
