Italy’s

head coach

Roberto Mancini

has talked about their way to the 2022 Qatar World Cup and says that he would rather not face

in case they defeat

North Macedonia

After winning the continental competition, now Italy has failed to get to the World Cup directly, and they have to face North Macedonia in the semi-final, and if they manage to reach the next stage, they will face either Portugal or Turkey in an important clash.

Mancini is positive about his side’s quality and thinks that they are capable of doing anything, but he admits that they are going to have a tough path to the World Cup.

He said:

"We are always confident and positive. Macedonia had a good qualifying group, we will have to play a great match. Then we will see what happens in the final.”

He has also talked about their possible clash against Portugal, who experienced a dramatic path to the play-offs insisting that he would rather not face the Euro 2016 champions.

Asked about the prospect of coming up against Portugal, he said:

"We would have liked to avoid them, in the same way Portugal would have gladly avoided Italy."
