Swedish Radio's commentator Christian Olsson completely let his emotions out when Monday's match ended without any Italian goals.
"Sweden will be playing the World Cup in Russia! Sweden will be playing the World Cup in Russia!" he chanted shortly after the final whistle, mirroring some of the incredulity in Sweden that the national team will be in the line-up for the tournament next summer.
Radio Sweden spoke to people on the streets of Stockholm to hear their reactions.
