The big shock of the week, apart from England managing to keep clean sheets against both Germany and Brazil, was the elimination of Italy from the 2018 World Cup Finals in Russia.

The Azzurri were knocked out of the competition, by Sweden, in the European section play-off stages.

The shock waves have reverberated around a proud nation who last failed to qualify for the World Cup Finals in the 1950`s.

In the aftermath of their elimination, it is expected that the current head-coach Giampiero Ventura will be axed.

Worryingly, one news source, Daily Star, is already linking Jose Mourinho with the vacancy.

Our referenced source carries a plea from the former Inter Milan defender, Giuseppe Bergomi, for the Italian Football Association to approach Mourinho to lead them out of the international wilderness.

In recent weeks, speculation has linked Mourinho with a move to Paris Saint-Germain whilst, in the past, Mourinho has admitted he`d like a chance to manage on the international stage.

However, at 54-years-of-age you suspect the opportunity, if offered, may well be turned down!
