Additional qualifiers for the World Cup were drawn on Friday. It turned out that in the final stage we will see only one of the two giants – Cristiano Ronaldo led Portugal or European Champion Italy.
The Portuguese will meet Turkish footballers in the semi-finals, while the Italians will accept the challenge from Northern Macedonia. Still, the winners of these national teams will compete in the final for a ticket to the championship in Qatar.
The 12 teams in the additional selection were divided into three subgroups and only the three winners of the last team won the competition in the World Cup.
The semi-finals of this selection will be played on March 24 and 25, 2022, while the finals will take place on Days 28 and 29.
🥁 The semi-finals are set for the European play-offs!
