Italy miss out on place in 2022 World Cup as Jorginho’s failure proves costly
The Daily Mirror says Northern Ireland ensured history repeated itself as they threw a spanner in Italy’s World Cup hopes again.
They famously beat the Azzurri at Windsor Park in 1958 to qualify for that year’s finals in Sweden at their expense.
And on Monday night Northern Ireland brilliantly frustrated Roberto Mancini’s European champions, who must now try and reach Qatar through the play-offs after Switzerland beat Bulgaria to top the group.
The result was easily the finest of Ian Baraclough’s 20-match reign and it has restored some pride for the Northern Irish after a difficult campaign.
