The Italian national team is close to qualifying for the Euro after defeating North Macedonia 5-2 at the Olympico, so it needs to emerge with a draw from facing Ukraine in the next round to ensure that it will accompany England to Germany.
As for the Poland national team, in an unexpected surprise, its chances of reaching Euro 2024 ended after a 1-1 draw with the Czech Republic in the last match of Robert Lewandowski’s team in the qualifiers, and the other card with Albania from this group remains pending between the Czech Republic and Moldova.
Some other matches were also held on Friday evening, as England won 2-0 over Malta at Wembley Stadium, Finland defeated Northern Ireland 4-0, and Kazakhstan won 3-1 over San Marino.
