I watched the game tonight.

Half wanted Italy out for the drama on the night. Half wanted Italy through because they would be a more exciting prospect to watch in Russia.

Italy had a nightmare path to the finals in a group with Spain and Holland and then they could not have drawn a tougher unseeded team in the play offs. England would have not qualified in the same circumstances.

I'm more worried about Sweden qualifying. England always struggle against them and sods law says we will be in the same group as them with a top south american country.

Agree re England. Italy would have expected to beat Sweden over 2 legs, though.
