Serie A president Lorenzo Cassini said Italy’s humiliating failure to qualify for the World Cup meant there had to be “profound change” after this pain.
The Italian team fell 1-0 to North Macedonia on Thursday in the semifinals of the European playoff, which means that the Italian team will miss the World Cup for the second time in a row for the first time in its history.

The Italian national team will miss the Qatar 2022 World Cup, as it was currently in the 2018 Russia World Cup, and there will be a process that will probably make some people accountable for this poor result achieved by the four. world champion time.

“The lack of qualification for the final stage of the World Cup is a failure of Italian football as a whole, and this should lead everyone to a real reaction and a profound change in our system,” Cassini said on Friday.

“Currently I only feel the great sadness of all the fans, I am very sorry, when I think of the boys and girls who are still waiting to see Italy in the World Cup and who should be able to continue growing in the blue dream. .”

And he added: “The clubs and players of Serie A have always responded positively to the invitations of the Italian national team and always will, also because it is about the sporting commitment that unites the country and must always make us overcome all loyalty and all division, The selection belongs to everyone”.

And the Italian coach, Roberto Mancini, obtained the support to continue as coach of the national team, by the president of the Italian Federation, Gabriele Gravina, after the loss of the Italian national team.

Gravina had wanted to postpone the last day of the Italian League competitions to give the team more time to prepare for the match, but the League rejected it.

After yesterday’s match, Gravina said: “I’m sorry, the players had a day to prepare for the match. It doesn’t help, but I don’t want to cause controversy.”
