W/Cup qualifiers: Italy Join Portugal, Fail To Get Automatic Ticket




European champions, Italy on Monday failed to book automatic qualification for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Italy will now settle for a place in the World Cup play-offs having only managed a 0-0 draw at Northern Ireland on Monday night.

All they needed in the night was a win to have a chance of finishing above Switzerland in the automatic qualification spots.

Italy suffered the same fate as 2016 European champions, Portugal who could not make it to the competition automatically on Sunday after they were defeated at home by Serbia.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal finished second in their group with a late defeat to Serbia on Sunday.

With Switzerland beating Bulgaria 4-0 to top Group C, Italy – who failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup after going into the play-offs – must settle for second place while Northern Ireland made sure of third
