Delayed by the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the qualifiers for the FIFA 2022 World Cup are finally upon us. Although the plight of COVID hasn’t been mitigated, with Euro 2020 imminent, the qualifiers for the world cup couldn’t be further postponed.
In a bid to make up for lost time, the first international break will see three rounds of qualifiers be conducted. The hectic schedule is being engaged in to determine the spots for next year’s event with 55 countries in the fray for a spot in the gargantuan affair.
Fiorentina’s Cesare Prandelli stepped down earlier this week just months after returning for a second spell at Artemio Franchi to aid their survival, citing a “dark cloud” inside him that prevented him from doing the job to the best of his abilities and hinted that he is done with coaching.
“In life, as well as the good times, there are also dark moments which can get on top of you,” wrote the 63-year-old Italian. “I have been going through a period of profound distress which is preventing me from being who I really am.
“Over the past few months, a dark cloud has developed inside of me, changing the way I see things. I came here to give 100%, but I now feel that this is no longer possible and therefore I have decided to step back for the good of everyone involved.

Can Montenegro make it two wins out of two in World Cup qualifying?
On Wednesday night, they came from a goal down to beat Latvia 2-1 in Rīga; talisman Stevan Jovetić with a brace.
The Monaco centre-forward has now scored 30 international goals in just 59 caps.
Montenegro are aiming to qualify for a major competition for the first time as an independent nation, appearing at World Cup 2006 as Serbia & Montenegro.
It will not be easy for Miodrag Radulović’s side who host Norway on matchday three with matches against Netherlands and Turkey to come.
Thus, they can not afford to drop points in games such as this.
Gibraltar meanwhile welcomed Norway to Victoria Stadium on Wednesday and, despite holding out for 43 minutes, were eventually beaten 3-0.
This means they’re still awaiting their first ever points in European Qualifiers.
Although, Julio César Ribas’ side did win promotion to UEFA Nations League C in 2020, topping their group above Liechtenstein and san Marino.
For this game though, Montenegro aren’t in the same league, quite literally as they won promotion to League B.
This one will surely only go one way at Stadion pod Goricom.
Prediction: Montenegro 3-0 Gibraltar
Montenegro are looking to win three successive matches for the first time since 2017.
Gibraltar have lost all 29 European Qualifiers they’ve ever played.
