Italy ran out of chances to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup after losing at home (1-0) against North Macedonia in the last minutes. The ‘Azurra’ will not play the most important competition in football for the second consecutive time, since they did not attend Russia 2018 either. After the commitment, coach Roberto Mancini was still surprised by the result.

“In July I experienced the most beautiful joy of my career in the European Championship. Now I have experienced the greatest disappointment. This is football, sometimes incredible things happen. It’s hard for me to analyze the match.”He explained at a press conference.

The DT recognized that the team wasted great opportunities to open the scoring. “I don’t know what to say, maybe we shouldn’t have gone that far, but we had two situations that don’t normally happen, even one would have been enough to get through the tie.”he pointed.

“The victory in the European Championship was deserved and then the luck that accompanied us turned completely against us”Mancini mentioned that he assumed the technical direction of Italy in May 2018 and had previously directed teams such as Fiorentina, Lazio, Inter, among others.

Likewise, when asked about his continuity in command of the ‘Azurra’, the strategist answered the following: “I don’t know, now the disappointment is too great. First you have to let some time go by but the team has good players and has a great future”.

The North Macedonia Way

The North Macedonia team defeated Italy and entered the last round of the European playoffs and will have to face Portugal for a place in the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The decisive match, of direct elimination, will be played this Tuesday March 29.
