Yes, I agree. While at first glance it appears somewhat easy, you look closer and realize that there are some meaty challenges and tough road trips. One cannot deny however that we could have been assigned worse. Some good tests for Mancini as he tries to build a group.

Less than a week until the draw. Just hoping there is something left in Barella & Sensi by the end of the Serie A season for Nazionale. Play them with/or any combination of Jorginho, Verratti & Tonali, and you're talking World Class.

Italy now up to 13th place from 15th in the latest FIFA World Ranking published today.

Importantly, Italy is now the 8th placed team from UEFA in the ranking; the top 10 will be the top seeded teams in the 2022 WC UEFA preliminary draw in December 2020.
