Dom Cassisi Responds To Italy Failing To Qualify For The World Cup

For the first time in 60 years, Italy have not qualified for the World Cup.

The Azzuri went down in a two-leg playoff to Sweden, with an outpouring of sadness and rage emanating from the proud soccer nation.

The Rush Hour's Jars & Louie thought they'd check in on their Italian mate, and Triple M Adelaide's soccer *expert*, former-Port Adelaide captain Dom Cassisi to see how he was faring.

"I tried to ring the family back over in Italy and I can't get a hold of anyone. I reckon they're all in church," Cassisi confessed to Jars & Louie.

"There'll be 60 days of mourning.

"On Christmas Day they'll all be wearing black."

Cassisi suggested a uniquely Italian way the people of South Australia can show their respect to the fallen Italian soccer side.

"If we're going to be serious about it, I reckon everyone should put a packet of pasta outside their front door," Cassisi suggested.

"Penne, gnocchi, spirali - any of it will do.

"Put our your pasta for respect."
