Italy vs. Britain to avoid Serbia

Italy is not masters of its own destiny: to avoid listed Serbia, Pozzecco’s gang will have to beat England and hope for a good result from Croatia-Ukraine, scheduled for 2:15 p.m.

The possible combinations are many, in fact, already from the 2:15 p.m. game it will be known whether the Azzurri will be third or fourth: if Italy wins against Great Britain it will be third in case Ukraine overcomes Croatia. If, on the other hand, Croatia wins, Ukraine would have to keep the difference within 17 points to avoid being in fourth place. The surprise could also come from Serbia itself in case it loses the match valid for first place in the group against Poland.
