Italy will headline the powerhouse of football who failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup to be staged in Russia next year.

Notable countries that failed to qualify include four-time champions Italy (for the first time since 1958) and 2014 third place finishers Netherlands, with both those teams being knocked out by Sweden.

The other longest qualifying streaks broken were for Ghana and Ivory Coast, who had both made the previous three tournaments.
