Dthe first trauma has been overcome. But it was just one of two other looming injuries, and perhaps the mildest of them all. With a 5-2 win over North Macedonia at the sold-out Olympic Stadium in Rome, the Squadra Azzurra at least overcame the ignominy of Palermo on Friday night.
But the sad 1-0 defeat on March 24, 2022 by the footballers of a country whose existence many Italians had never even heard of until then is far from forgotten. Aleksandar Trajkovski’s goal in the second minute of stoppage time meant the four-time world champions were eliminated from qualification for the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar.
