In their semi-final match, Portugal defeated Turkey 3-1. In their playoff semi-final against Turkey, Portugal and their significantly depleted defense kept to their mission and swiftly went two goals up thanks to Otavio’s close-range finish and Diogo Jota’s superbly placed header.
Burak Yilmaz then went from hero to zero for Turkey, as the Lille veteran tucked home to halve the gap before firing a penalty over the crossbar, and Matheus Nunes completed the score with seconds remaining. Three of the Euro 2016 champions’ defensive mainstays, Joao Cancelo, Pepe, and Ruben Dias, were unavailable for the semi-final for various reasons.
On a spectacular night in Palermo, Macedonia defeated incumbent European champions Italy 1-0. Blagoja Milevski and his team will remember their triumph over the Euro 2020 winners and 2006 World Cup champions for a long time, with the manager declaring that his team “won Italian style” over the wasteful Azzurri.
North Macedonia’s cherished victory in Palermo was their third in a row in World Cup qualifying, as well as their third consecutive win and clean sheet away from home, and there’s no reason for Milevski’s side to believe they can’t go all the way and qualify for their first-ever World Cup finals tournament.
