Italy to face Sweden in World Cup playoffs

Italy to face Sweden in World Cup playoffs”

We are Italy and we shouldn't be afraid of anyone. They are strong defensively and they will be very physical against us. We have optimism and history (on our side).

A regular at every World Cup since 1958, the Italians were drawn Tuesday to play in Sweden in the first leg of the playoff on November 10.

Four-time champion Italy will have to beat Sweden in a European playoff to qualify for its 15th straight World Cup.

"I think we would have a traditionally big travelling support".

He told the Irish Sun: "We are discussing that with the Danish FA".

Northern Ireland coach Michael O'Neill admitted he faced an uphill task against the Swiss as he bids to steer his country to the finals for the first time since 1986.

It has also been confirmed by the Association that the home leg is included in the 2017-18 FAI Season Ticket package. "Our job is to make their life as hard as possible", he said.

"It's lamentable, but also completely grotesque that we find ourselves in a situation where the players won't turn up for important national team games even though we've offered them better conditions and invited them to further negotiations after the match".

"It's wrong to call it a favourable draw, but certainly beforehand we would have taken it".

The Republic of Ireland need to keep up the form they showed at the end of qualifying when they eliminated Wales to reach the playoffs, their coach Martin O'Neill said.

If the Danish FA acquiesce to Ireland's request, they would have over 5,000 fans at the second leg in Dublin.

"It's a good draw, not an easy draw, but a good draw as it's still a tie that we are capable of winning", O'Neill said.

"It's going to be a hard game for us".
