Foot Mondial – Deprived of the World Cup, Italy addresses FIFA
Beaten by North Macedonia (0-1) in the play-offs, Italy will not play the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. An inexplicable absence for the Italian Jorginho, who calls on FIFA to review its regulations in favor of the winner of the Euro.
Italy does not recover. For the first time in its history, the Squadra Azzurra will miss two consecutive World Cups. Roberto Mancini’s men failed to dominate their qualifying group. Then had clashed with North Macedonia in dams. A difficult episode to cash in for Jorginho who had missed two penalties during the playoffs. Two opportunities that could have allowed his selection to validate his ticket to Qatar.
Jorginho gets loose
Suddenly, the middle of Chelsea is still struggling to digest. According to him, Italy should be automatically qualified after its coronation at the Euro. » It’s ridiculous to win the Euro and not go directly to the World Cupcriticized the Italian on the Globo Esporte website. For the love of God, call FIFA and UEFA for an explanation. Maybe because we couldn’t qualify, I’m even more outraged, but hey, you win, you kill yourself on the field and you have to do the playoffs again. »

« We win the Euro for what then? Just to win the Euro? We win the Europa League to qualify for the Champions League. You win the Champions League and you play in the club world championshiprecalled Jorginho. The World Cup is the top, there is no higher. If you win the World Cup, you must qualify for the next one. You win the Euro, the Copa America or the Asian Nations Cup and you don’t go directly to the World Cup? It’s a joke. And the frustration will only grow as the tournament approaches next November.
