THE BALL – The Netherlands and Denmark want the defeat of Portugal (World Cup 2022)

Italy’s elimination in the qualifying play-offs could change the composition of the 2022 World Cup draw. Seventh in the FIFA rankings, the reigning European champions had a guaranteed place in Pot 1, a place who could now return to Portugal.

Eighth in the world hierarchy, the national team will face the modest North Macedonia, ranked 67th, which means that a surprise at the Estádio do Dragão opens a place in pot 1. A situation that pleases the Netherlands and in Denmark.

Tenth in the FIFA Ranking, the Dutch will face Denmark in a friendly match scheduled for this Saturday. If you win, the A clockwork orange overtakes the Nordics, leaves Germany, 11th, a long way off, and awaits the defeat of Portugal to achieve seeded status. The same goes for the Danes who, if they triumph, consolidate the ninth position and will be the only ones to advance in the event of a victory for North Macedonia.

Remember that in pot 1 the selections of Qatar (host), Belgium, Brazil, France, Argentina, England and Spain are already confirmed.
