The FIGC has confirmed the FIFA World Cup qualifier match Italy vs Macedonia will take place at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino on October 6th at 20:45 CET.
FIGC president Carlo Tavecchio sent a letter to Torino mayor Chiara Appendino, thanking the city for its interest and availability:
“Torino has always been the ideal setting for the events of our national team: it is here that the federation was born, which in 2018 will celebrate its 100 year anniversary; Torino has always given the azzurri colors emotions and memories tied past and present champions.”
The national team will return to Torino exactly one year to the day when they played against Spain in a World Cup Qualifier (1-1 draw) at Juventus Stadium.
Italy and Macedonia face each other for the second time. In their previous only encounter on October 9th at Skopie, the azzurri won 3-2 with goals by Belotti and a brace by Immobile.
Italy start the second half of their qualifying matches tied in first place with Spain in Group G – 13 points. Spain is ahead on goal differential. Italy will face Liechtenstein on Sunday in Udine.
