Italy's World Cup qualifying failure has resulted in a number of staples stepping aside from the international game. After their exits, here's who is left in the 100-cap club.
Italian legend Gianluigi Buffon has had a mixed year.
Having won the Serie A title and the Coppa Italia with Juventus come months ago, the 39-year-old stopper was beaten by Real Madrid in the Champions final in his last game of the campaign.
And as if things couldn't get any worse for him, Buffon won't be taking part in next year's World Cup, with Italy failing to qualify for the tournament after a 0-0 draw with Sweden on Monday.
The keeper must have been hoping to go out on a high and play in his last World Cup before calling curtains on a remarkable international career. However, it wasn't to be, and he would walk off the pitch in tears on Monday, having played out his last game for his country - the last of an amazing 175 appearances.
His compatriot Danielle De Rossi also bowed out on Monday, leaving 94 active internationals, who have 100 caps or more to their name, still in the game.
Here they are below:
