Italy eliminated from World Cup contention by...North Macedonia

Recommended Posts


Italy missed out on the World Cup finals again after losing 1-0 at home to a late goal from Aleksandar Trajkovski for North Macedonia, who now face Portugal




Italy missed out on the World Cup finals again after losing 1-0 at home to North Macedonia in their playoff semi-final as Aleksandar Trajkovski’s last-gasp strike earned the visitors a famous win.


Italy did not qualify for the World Cup four years ago, missing out for the first time since 1958, but the European champions dominated from the off in Palermo. The hosts became more desperate in their search for a winner after the break, however, as chances continued to come and go before, in stoppage time, Trajkovski arrowed in a stunning winner to spark wild North Macedonian celebrations.
