Italdon World Cup qualifiers against Ireland, Scotland and Spain sparked excitement around rugby blueContrary to predictions, Irish favorites took tickets to New Zealand. But what will be Italy’s opponents?
Blue will make its debut against the United States on October 9, 2022, Certainly a high level of training, but unbeatable. The Americans are ahead of de Giandomenico’s Italy in the world rankings, but this is a very funny form, and if Neela can show the rugby seen in Scotland and mainly Spain, this achievement is not impossible.
However, on October 16, it will be Canada’s turn. The North Americans are one of the strongest national teams in the world, and of course the mandatory favorites in Group B, a team that includes Italy. This can be difficult for Furlan and his teammates who have to pay 100% on the pitch trying to get a difficult subversion on paper. But this is not a game to be won in a group.
Finally, on October 23, the group stage against Italdone Asia 1 endsThat is, the winner of the Asian Qualifying Tournament. The tournament where the favorites are seen in the beginning Japan, Hong Kong and Kazakhstan. Assuming the Japanese are qualified, it is a challenge to win perfectly against a dangerous team, but at a lower level than Italy. For the Blues, the challenges against the USA and Japan are fundamental to aiming for second place, which will give them some qualification for the quarterfinals, while if there is a knockout with the Americans the Blues should aim for one of the top two thirds. Places to continue the route.
