Good evening to all OA Sport readers, and welcome to LIVE LIVE for the fourth match of group H valid for qualifying for the World Cup in Philippines, Indonesia and Japan 2023 between Italy and Iceland. It is played at PalaDozza, three days after the Hafnarfjordur match.
We arrive at this confrontation with Iceland who knew how to do just that in their own arena, after a contest that lasted two extra times. Hlinason was the main defensive puzzle, unsolvable for the team coached by Meo Sacchetti, who tried unsuccessfully to use the opposite weapon, that of the little ones (finding however, among the longs, a commendable Biligha).
The National team returns to the stadium in Piazza Azzarita three and a half years after the last time, finding it sold out (as far as is allowed by current health safety regulations). Diego Flaccadori has recovered and will play in place of an impalpable Imbrò in Iceland.
Clearly this match will have only one possible result for the Azzurri: victory , since a defeat would seriously damage not the possibility of passing to the second phase, but the progress of the same, with the associated risk of not going to play the world championship. .
The match between Italy and Iceland will start at 20:30. Have fun with OA Sport LIVE LIVE!
