European champions Italy may face Portugal for a World Cup spot next year

A series of play-off matches to determine who will occupy Europe’s final three spots for the 2022 World Cup may pit European Champions Italy against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal in an intense clash of the titans.

On Friday, the draws for the play-off paths to determine Europe’s final spots took place, with Italy to host North Macedonia in the first round and Turkey to take on Portugal. The winners of the aforementioned matches will play against each other for a place at next year’s finals.

Italy failed to qualify for the last World Cup after a crushing loss to Sweden in the play-offs while Portugal have been in every major football tournament since their absence from the 1998 World Cup.
