Video: World Cup Heartbreak for Italy as Macedonia clinch the late winner

March 25, 2022 - 12:02 am

North Macedonia have eliminated Italy from World Cup qualifying with a very late goal, in a game which we will rue our missed chances.

The likes of Giorgio Chiellini and Leo Bonucci will likely be the most devastate with the result, with this tournament likely to have been their last chance to add to their international trophy hauls as they close in their retirement, while Federico Chiesa, Moise Kean, Mattia De Sciglio and Federico Bernadeschi will not be best pleased at missing out either.

Italy will really rue the raft of chances which they failed to put away, having been heavily dominant throughout the 90 minutes, only to be eliminated by a great effort in injury time.

Questions could well be asked of manager Roberto Mancini despite leading us to glory in the European Championships in the summer, with this disappointing blow possibly one which will be hard to forgive.

    Not for Juventus, our players have been left behind repeatedly, mancicni has his favourites and they try to delete our club whenever they can. We are outsiders, even if we are Italian, the disconnect has not been such a great gap as today.
