Which nations qualified to play in Qatar-2022? Did Portugal and Italy qualify?

The football “soccer”‘s craze has been on this planet from the very beginning of the 19th century. Whether it is Maradona or Messi, Pele or Neymar, Ronaldo or Figo, there always has been someone who finds his ball into the net for their nations. After four catastrophic final goals conceded by Croatia, it was bliss for France as they had their hands on the cup. But who will play this year? Is Cristiano Ronaldo playing this year or are they really disqualified?

Italy & Portugal, in or out?

Italy, the four-time world cup lifters were out of the world cup 2018 as they didn’t qualify. But Portugal, a team which has Euro Cup-2016, its only major trophy had made it to the round of 16 but got eliminated by two goals of Cavani.

Portugal in Group A, with their core potential, Cristiano Ronaldo landed to play against Serbia to get qualified for the World Cup. Whereas Serbia with little hope of winning and getting qualified amazes the world by defeating Portugal. Whereas, Italy just 2 points behind Switzerland fails to top Group C. A team of Donnarumma, Gollini the team which has players like Chelini, Guilangi Buffon played has to now play in the playoffs. And what is more interesting is these Portugal won Euro Cup 2016 and Italy won the 2020’s. And these two teams have to lose their matches to lift another.

Portugal will first play with Turkey and the winning team plays with the winner between the match of Italy and North Macedonia. If Portugal manages to overcome Turkey and Italy to overcome North Macedonia then Italy and Portugal will have to play against each other to set their feet on Qatar. So, yes we will either miss Bruno Fernandes or Chiesa.
