Sweden celebrated in style after qualifying for the World Cup as the squad rushed over to mob TV presenters on the sidelines following the final whistle.

Janne Andersson’s side booked their place at the World Cup with a goalless draw in the second leg of their play-off against Italy, which secured a 1-0 aggregate win.

And Sweden’s players could hardly contain themselves in Milan as they sprinted over to a nearby Eurosport set, which was situated near the corner flag.

The squad mobbed the presenters, almost causing the table to topple over before a steward at the San Siro intervened.

Mikael Lustig, who found himself at the front of the crowd of players, then seized his moment in the spotlight by showing off some interesting dance moves.

Sweden were forced to withstand a barrage of pressure from the Italians but managed to hold firm to book their place in Russia.

Jakob Johansson’s winner from the first leg in Stockholm proved enough to secure qualification for their first World Cup since 2006.

Italy, meanwhile, have failed to qualify for the tournament for the first time in 60 years after the shock play-offs defeat.

It was Gianluigi Buffon’s last for the Azzurri and the result means the legendary goalkeeper has been denied the chance to appear at a sixth World Cup finals.

Manager Gian Piero Ventura was under intense pressure heading into the play-offs after finishing second behind Spain in their qualification group.

The former Torino boss said before the game it would have been a ‘catastrophe’ if Italy didn’t qualify and is now expected to leave his post.
