The Italian footballers drew 1: 1 with Switzerland in Friday’s World Championship 2022 qualifiers and maintained their position as the C-group leader.
A moment from the match between Hungary and San Marino.
Both teams have the same number of 15 points in the account, the Italians lead thanks to a better score, when they have scored two goals more in the seven performances so far. The advancing, resp. the results of the final matches will determine the participant of the draw.
The guests took the lead in the 11th minute at Rome’s Olympic Stadium, which was filled to 75 percent of total capacity. Silvan Widmer rested behind the penalty area and the ball ended up in the net of Gianluigi Donnarummu. The home team responded to the break, after a well-played standard Giovanni Di Lorenzo overcame Yann Sommer’s head.
Lorenzo Insigne could have increased the lead after 77 minutes, but his shot hit the post after a nice combination in the middle of the park. In the 90th minute, Ulisses Garcia fouled Domenico Berardi in the penalty area and the Italians had a great opportunity to decide on the gain of all three points, but Jorginho out of the 11th goal scored.
The first place in the I-group and the direct promotion to the championship are de facto in the pocket of the English, who declassified the national team of Albania 5: 0 also thanks to Harry Kane’s hat-trick. They lead the table before their last match in San Marino with a three-point lead over Poland, which had no problem in Andorra and defeated the outsider 4: 1. Thanks to the win, she secured at least the second place in the table and participated in the playoffs.
Andorra played the whole match without the disqualified Ricardo Fernandez, who hit Kamil Glik’s elbow and the referee showed him a red card in the 15th second. The third duel of the “Greek” between Hungary and San Marino (4: 0) in the Budapest Arena Ferenc Puskás was led by the Slovak Filip Glova from the position of the main referee.
The Scottish national team won 2: 0 on Moldova. She thus secured second place in the F-group table and participation in the playoffs. The Scots have 20 points on their account, seven less than certain winners of the Danish group. They also won the ninth match in this qualifying cycle, the Faroe Islands defeated 3: 1.
