A World Cup without Italy doesn’t feel quite right. Italy are not the first major nation to miss out on the World Cup, and they certainly will not be the last. ITALY/SPAIN 1958Italy’s only other failure to qualify for the World Cup came 60 years ago. EGYPT 2010Incredibly, Egypt’s upcoming appearance at the 2018 World Cup will be their first since 1990. CHILE 2018Surely the two-time defending Copa America champions will play at the 2018 World Cup?
