The coach of the Italian men's national team, Roberto Mancini has spoken about his team's elimination from the World Cup playoffs.
The European Champions were knocked out courtesy of a 92nd-minute goal from North Macedonia to end the hope of the Italians. Italy were looking to book a spot in Qatar 2022 having missed out on the Russia 2018 World Cup.
I’m more than disappointed, I’ve nothing to say. Something incredible happened tonight. We deserved to win the Euros, now we’ve been really unlucky… but that’s it, that’s the reality. I’m sorry for the players.
North Macedonia will play Portugal in the final of the playoffs. The Portuguese beat Turkey 3-1 in the semi-finals to secure a place in the finals of the competition.
