Expansion

The qualifier playoff matches for the FIFA World Cup 2022 have been announced. Its draw was awaited for a long time. 12 teams will play in this playoff. Out of this, six will reach the next round i.e. path A, B and C. It will be a knockout match.

The winning team will take part in the FIFA World Cup 2022 to be held in Qatar. At the same time, the losing team will be out of the FIFA World Cup race. That is, out of the three paths, only three teams will qualify for the FIFA World Cup and the remaining nine teams will be eliminated. The FIFA World Cup gave this information on Twitter.

Euro champion Italy and Cristiano Ronaldo’s team Portugal are also taking part in this playoff, as both of these teams could not win the qualifier round. Now for them this playoff is the last way to reach the FIFA World Cup. However, this tournament is not going to be easy for these two teams.

This is because these two may face each other to qualify for the FIFA World Cup. If this happens, then this competition is going to be very big. If Italy’s team does not qualify for the FIFA World Cup, it will be the second time that the team will not play the World Cup.

In 2016 also the team could not qualify for the World Cup. At the same time, this could be Ronaldo’s last World Cup. In such a situation, he would not want to retire from international football by not qualifying. He will try to win the match against Italy at any cost. However, even before this clash, both Portugal and Italy will have to win a match each.

Ukraine, Scotland, Russia, Poland, Italy, North Macedonia, Wales, Australia, Sweden, Czech Republic, Portugal and Turkey will take part in the qualifier playoffs for the FIFA World Cup.

  • Any two teams from Ukraine, Scotland, Austria and Wales will compete in the main match of Path-A. In the first match, Scotland will face Ukraine and Wales will face Austria. There will be a knockout match between the winning teams and the winning team will qualify for the FIFA World Cup.
  • Any two teams from Russia, Poland Sweden and Czech Republic will face in the main match of Path-B. In the first match, Russia will face Robert Lewandowski’s Poland. At the same time, in the second match, the team of Sweden and Czech Republic will face each other. There will be a knockout match between the winning teams and the winning team will qualify for the FIFA World Cup.
  • Italy, North Macedonia, Portugal and Turkey will face any two teams in the main match of Path-C. Italy will face North Macedonia in the first match. At the same time, in the second match, the team of Portugal and Turkey will face each other. There will be a knockout match between the winning teams and the winning team will qualify for the FIFA World Cup.
  • Both Italy and Portugal had finished second in their respective groups in the previous qualifiers and could not qualify directly. In his place, Switzerland and Serbia qualified directly for the FIFA World Cup.
  • Portugal has been the champion teams of 2016 and Italy of 2020 Euro Cup. Only one of the two teams will be able to qualify. That is, any one Euro champion will have to be out of the World Cup.
  • If we look at the figures between Portugal and Italy, then the Italian team has a huge upper hand. There have been 27 international matches between the two. Italy has won 18 of these matches. At the same time, Portugal has won 6 matches. Three matches have been tied.
  • There have been three different results in the last three matches between the two. Win, lose and the last match was a draw. The two teams last met in the 2018 UEFA Nations League, which ended in a draw.
  • Now it remains to be seen whether Portugal qualifies for the World Cup, or Ronaldo may have to retire without playing the World Cup.

Portugal and Italy will be out

If the Portugal team qualifies, it will retain its record of qualifying in every World Cup since 1998. If this does not happen, then the team may have to be out of this tournament for the first time in 23 years. At the same time, Italy’s team has qualified for the FIFA World Cup every time from 1958 to 2016. In 2016, Sweden was defeated in the qualifiers and thus Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time in 58 years.

Where will the 2022 FIFA World Cup be played?

The FIFA World Cup will be played in Qatar in 2022. This will be the 22nd edition of this tournament. The group stage matches of the World Cup-2022 will last for 12 days in which four matches will be played daily. The tournament will begin on November 21 at the Al Bayt Stadium. The final will be played on 18 December at the Lusail Stadium.
