Paulo Dybala ‘chooses PSG’, Portugal or Italy to miss out on World Cup

Good morning football fans

Italy boss Roberto Mancini isn’t happy that his side are in the play-offs.

Nevertheless, Mancini’s confident that the team he’s put together is capable of getting past North Macedonia.

He said on Monday: “We should not have been here.

“I have talented players who built a victory out of nothing that nobody believed in.

“That does not guarantee you getting to the World Cup, but it’s a solid base.”

But Giorgio Chiellini has warned his Italian team-mates not to underestimate North Macedonia.

He said: “We need humility, because North Macedonia are not here as a fluke, there are players we know and recognise from their club football.

Elsewhere, Gareth Bale has revealed that Wales’ crucial World Cup play-off clash against Austria is one of the biggest games of his career.

The Real Madrid ace said: “For sure it will be one of biggest games I’ve played in.

“Qualifying for a World Cup is something I want to achieve for the fans, the country. It’s definitely a massive game, we all want to do well.”

Bale was a doubt for today’s match but he’s declared that he’s raring to go after experiencing a few ‘niggles.’

Bale announced: “It’s normal to have some niggles.

“I’ve been training for the last two and a half months.

“I’m in a lot better shape than I was in the last camp where I’d been out for about three months. I’m ready to play whatever is necessary tomorrow.”

And that’s bad news for Bale’s Real Madrid team-mate and Austrian star David Alba who fears Bale can ruin his country’s chances single-handedly.

Alba said: “Gareth can decide games himself and he’s not always easy to be stopped, but we want to focus on ourselves and our own game.”

However, Spanish media have slammed Bale for being ready to face Austria but not being fit for Real Madrid’s game against Barcelona last weekend.

The Madrid star came under fire in Spain as his return was dubbed ‘The Miracle of Wales’.

Another paper had the headline, ‘It doesn’t hurt any more’.

Finally, Portugal manager Fernando Santos is confident Portugal will come up trumps when they face Turkey.

Santos said: “What has always happened for the Portuguese national team is a positive pressure.

“The two finals we’ve been in, we won. In qualifiers, the decisive ones, we always gave a positive response, with the exception of the last one (against Serbia).

“These players have a lot of experience and don’t let themselves be influenced.”
