    VETERAN Italy defender Leonardo Bonucci blasted the World Cup qualifying format after the Euro 2020 winners failed to book their ticket for the tournament. The Azzurri will not be in Qatar later this year after being beaten 1-0 by minnows North Macedonia in a play-off last week. 1Bonucci has hit out at the World Cup qualifying formatCredit: Getty Despite being unbeaten in their qualifying group campaign, Italy finished as runners-up to Switzerland, meaning they had to qualify for the tournament via the dreaded play-offs.

The Balkan nation have come on leaps and bounds as a football power, qualifying for their first ever tournament when they reached Euro 2020. And the Italians will be well aware that the North Macedonians beat Germany away in qualifying, so they can't expect this one to be a formality.

Turkey will visit Portugal, before the winners of both of those one-legged ties battle it out for a spot at next year's World Cup.
