Soccer: Italy make strong start in World Cup qualifiers

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 26 – Italy made a strong start to their
campaign to qualify for the 2022 Qatar World Cup with a 2-0 win
over Northern Ireland in Parma on Thursday.
    Fine first-half strikes by Dominico Berardi and Ciro Immobile
enabled the Azzurri to extend their unbeaten run to 23 games.
    “The first half was perfected because we scored twice and could
have scored more,” said coach Roberto Mancini, who has
transformed the national team after taking over following their
failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
    “We played with a quick tempo.
    “In the second half, we had more of the ball but moved it around
slower although, after five months away, that can happen.”
The qualifying campaign continues with away trips to Bulgaria
and Lithuania on Sunday and Wednesday respectively. (ANSA).
