- Earlier, the UN ambassador called on FIFA to replace the Iranian national team with Italy at the 2022 World Cup.
The National Team of Italy can replace the Tunisian national team at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Earlier it was reported that FIFA may exclude Tunisia from the World Cup due to government interference in the country’s football affairs.
This happened after the words of the Minister of Youth and Sports of Tunisia, Kamel Deguish, who hinted that he could dissolve the Tunisian Football Federation.
If the Tunisian national team is suspended, its place at the 2022 World Cup can be taken by the Italian national team as the team occupying the highest place in the FIFA national team rankings.
The Tunisian national team at the 2022 World Cup will play in the same group with Denmark, Australia and France.
