Argentina Benefited in the 2022 World Cup

FiFA has drawn for the World Cup 2022 and as a result, several groups have unique characteristics. Starting from Saudi Arabia on paper, this will be an easy opponent for Argentina.

Especially if you look at the performance of Saudi Arabia, which is not good at the international level and has the most distended ranking in Group C. Of course, the squad has not been able to match Lionel Messi and his friends.

Apart from Saudi Arabia, Argentina will face Poland in Group C. Maybe this country can be a little troublesome for Lionel Messi and his friends.

World Cup 2022 – Finalist Team Performance

However, if you refer to FIFA rankings, Poland’s ability is still far from Argentina. Especially coupled with Poland’s journey to the 2022 World Cup position, which had to go through the play-offs first and fortunately was able to pursue Sweden with a score of 1-0.

Saudi Arabia National Team. The Green Falcons or the Green Eagle, nicknamed the Saudi Arabian national team, are 4 of the representatives of the Asian zone who will automatically qualify for the Qatar 2022 world cup. The Qatar world cup is the sixth time that Saudi Arabia has participated in the biggest championship on earth.

Saudi Arabia qualified as group B winners in the third round of the Asian zone world cup qualifiers. Together with Japan, Saudi Arabia got a ticket to qualify for Qatar. Herve Denard’s side have only lost once in the qualifying group B, against Japan in February 2022. Then the Arabs made sure to qualify after winning in the last match against Australia 1-0.

The best stadium ever qualified for the last 16 at the 1994 world cup. Driven by captain Salman Al Faraj, almost all Saudi Arabian players were local league players in Saudi. So that observers rate this team as only a complementary team in group C.

Italy Fails to World Cup 2022, Roberto Mancini's Mother I'll Call Mario Balotelli Euro

Italy Fails to World Cup 2022, Roberto Mancini’s Mother:…

Italy Fails to World Cup 2022, Roberto Mancini’s Mother: I’ll Call Mario Balotelli

Italy Fails to World Cup 2022, Roberto Mancini's Mother I'll Call Mario Balotelli

Marianna Puolo, Roberto Mancini’s mother, will call up Mario Balotelli if he becomes Italy coach. On the other hand, Puolo also regretted Jorginho’s penalty miss in the match against Switzerland in the qualifiers.

Italy tragically failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. Italy fell in the 2022 World Cup play-offs. Gli Azzurri lost 1-0 to North Macedonia in the duel held at Renzo Barbera.

Failing to qualify for the 2022 World Cup is a disaster for Italy. Because, they failed to advance to the World Cup two editions in a row. Especially in this edition, Italy failed after winning Euro 2020.

Behind Italy’s failure, there are many pros and cons. Especially the calling of players, including the absence of Mario Balotelli. Check out Puolo’s opinion on Italy’s failure below.

Should’ve called Mario Balotelli

Mancini had called Balotelli to join the training camp some time ago. Because, Balotelli performed well with Adana Demirspor in Turkey. However, Balotelli’s name was not included in the final list of the Italian squad.

“Yesterday could have been better, but this is football, sometimes things go well and sometimes they don’t. We have the game in our hands but the attack is not good,” said Puolo.

“I would call Mario Balotelli, because he has incredible physical strength and nothing can stop him when he is in front of goal,” said Puolo.

Balotelli has scored 11 goals in 25 matches in the Turkish Super League. The goal record is indeed inferior to Ciro Immobile or Domenico Berardi in Serie A. However, with his experience, Balotelli is considered worthy of defending Italy.

Regrets Jorginho’s penalty miss

Looking back, Puolo regrets missing Jorginho’s penalty against Switzerland in qualifying. Had that moment been a goal, Italy would have won and would not have to struggle in the play-offs to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

“Unfortunately, mistakes like Jorginho cost us. I don’t want to point my finger at him because he definitely didn’t do it on purpose, but if you miss three penalties…,” said Puolo.

“Macedonia only had one chance, maybe Gianluigi Donnarumma could save him but there is no point in talking about it now. This squad has not lost the magic at Euro 2020 and is afraid of making mistakes,” concluded Puolo.

Two Periods! Italy Makes History by Again Failing to Qualify for the World Cup

Italy again failed to qualify for the World Cup. After failing to go to Russia 2018, this time the owner of four World Cup titles failed to go to Qatar 2022. Four years ago, Gli Azzurri were tripped by Sweden. This time, they were knocked out by North Macedonia.

Italy had never previously missed two successive editions of the World Cup. This is the first time. Italy made a new history, but certainly not the history they wanted.

In the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers, Italy was unable to qualify automatically as group winners from the European zone qualifiers. They lost out to Spain and entered the play-offs, where they faced Sweden.

Gian Piero Ventura’s side lost 1-0 on aggregate and failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1958.

Roberto Mancini was then appointed as the new coach, and he successfully brought Italy to the Euro 2020 title. Italy seemed to have found a new passion.

After winning Euro 2020, Italy’s next target is to qualify for the 2022 World Cup

Italy is again in the play-offs, where this time the format is different. There are three Lines, namely A, B, and C. Italy is joined in Line C along with North Macedonia, Turkey and Portugal. The semifinal winner Italy vs North Macedonia will then face off against the semifinal winner Portugal vs Turkey in the final. Only one of these four teams will qualify for Qatar 2022.

Italy are favorites to beat North Macedonia. However, the opposite happened. Mancini’s men lost 0-1 at Renzo Barbera. Even more painful, the only goal that decided the visitors’ victory was scored by Aleksandar Trajkovski in injury time.

Italy has also failed to qualify for the World Cup twice in a row.

Italy’s failure to make Qatar 2022 sparked various reactions on social media, both from fans and not. Here are some of the tweets we could find.

Kick Balotelli

The name Mario Balotelli was believed to be included in the list of players for the Italian national team for the 2022 World Cup play-offs. However, recently coach Roberto Mancini chose to drop the 31-year-old bomber.

Balotelli has played quite well since being signed by Adana Demirspor at the start of the 2021/2022 season. With the Turkish club, the player who had played for Liverpool scored 11 goals in 20 Turkish Super League matches.

I brought those that could be more useful. We only have a few training sessions. Not much time to try new things, said Mancini in his press conference at Converciano, some time ago.

After ejecting Balotelli, Mancini called 10 players who are attacking positions. Both center forward and winger. So, how is the performance of these 10 players? Is it better than Balotelli? Check out the reviews below, Bolaneters.

Andrea Belotti

Andrea Belotti

Age: 28 years old
Home club: Torino
Number of games played/goals in the league: 15/4

Belotti missed a lot of Serie A games this season. He has only scored four goals for Torino. Belotti’s record in the national team is also not good enough, 10 games in a row without scoring a goal. However, Mancini still believes in Belotti.

Domenico Berardi

Domenico Berardi

Age: 27 years old
Home club: Sassuolo
Number of games played/goals in the league: 27/14

Berardi’s performance is very consistent and is now in his golden age. He became a key player in Italy at Euro 2020. Berardi is believed to be securing a place for the right winger position.
