Khedira saddened by Buffon World Cup exit

Khedira saddened by Buffon World Cup exit

Italy stunningly missed out on reaching Russian Federation 2018 after a 1-0 aggregate loss to Sweden in their play-off, which was completed on Monday.

Italy's Olympic Committee president has urged Italian Football Association (FIGC) president Carlo Tavecchio to step down after the country's failure to qualify for the World Cup. "For me that is greatness", he said.

A teary-eyed Buffon announced his global retirement after the 0-0 draw at the San Siro, with 175 worldwide caps to his name.

"If I were him, I'd resign". I have to evaluate an infinity of things. "You still have to delight us in football my friend!"

"Seeing Buffon cry saddened me", the 1982 World Cup victor, who also represented Juve with distinction for over a decade, told Goal .

Eight years later, Italy needed just a point to qualify for the World Cup but surprisingly lost to Northern Ireland. "He is 54 years old and he has never had to go through something like this".

Another Rome resident Enrico Doddi summed up the national disappointment, saying: "You can not have a good World Cup without Italy".

The Natixis Asset Management Has $526000 Position in Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI)
On October 19 analysts at SunTrust Banks released a research note on KMI with a rating of "Buy" and a price target of $23.00. Stock repurchase programs are generally an indication that the company's leadership believes its stock is undervalued.

Italy's failure to qualify for the World Cup for the first time in six decades shouldn't come as a shock to those who believe in fate, destiny and jinxes.

Giorgio Chiellini could also made a decision to pack it in - meaning Italy would lose a combined 461 caps from those four players - but the future of coach Giampiero Ventura is unclear. For Italy though it is kind of a chance for a new beginning.

"I read yesterday that De Rossi said he wouldn't want to be subbed in, because they needed a striker".

"I pointed to Insigne too". I don't want to judge the thoughts of other people.

Buffon even came up for two corners in a final desperate gamble but Italy fell desperately short, leading to damning headlines in the Italian press.

"It is an intolerable football shame, an indelible stain", the newspaper said.
