World Cup – Qualifiers
start: 20:45 (GMT+2)
calendar battle of Italy and Spain that was held last Saturday in
Madrid on Estadio Santiago Bernabéu had slightly reminded the final
match of EURO 2012 in Kiev (4:0). After that defeat for 5 years Furia
Roja has played 5 matches with Squadra Azzurra but that was the only
great defeat of the Italians. And now, after 6 attempts
Andrés Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, David Silva, Isco and their
partners had once again destroyed their famous opponent (3:0).
G tournament position
this new historic victory over its principal opponent Furia Roja had
proved its leading position:
– 19, Italy – 16, Albania – 12, Israel – 9 …
in three left matches the opponents of the World champions 2010 will
be the national teams of Liechtenstein (on the 5th
of September), Albania (on the 6th
of October) and Israel (on the 9th
of October). And for the final leadership in the group even with 100%
result in the all left matches of the national team of Italy, Furia
Roja has to gain only 7 points.
no rights to choose
is unlikely that there exist any doubts in the final championship of
the team of Julen Lopetegui in the 7th
European group. And what about Squadra Azzurra?
has to come to terms with its participation in the November play
offs. And that is why the football players of Giampiero Ventura have
to forget about the direct berth to the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018
and to aim for new victories during the matches against the mid level
teams and underdogs from its sextet.
us remind, that according to regulations of the qualification
campaign the right for participation in additional play offs are
getting 8 out of 9 final vice-champions from each group. And in order
not to become the 9 unwanted team, Squadra Azzurra has to gain three
victories with the highest possible score .
