Turkey to face Sweden in UEFA Nations League
The 55 associations were split into four leagues according to their rankings. The group winners in Leagues B, C, and D get promoted, while teams that finish at the bottom of their groups in Leagues A, B, and C are relegated.
Turkey will also play against Ukraine in a friendly match at home in the Mediterranean resort city of Antalya on Nov. 20.
Also on Nov. 17 in the Nations League, Portugal need a point to make the finals and Italy will have to shrug off the weight of history if it is to prevent Fernando Santos’s side taking it when the two countries clash at the Giuseppe Meazza in Milan.
The Azzurri are winless in five home matches for only the second time in their history, the last occurrence was between March 1923 and January 1925.
One thing that may work in coach Roberto Mancini’s favor is the element of surprise, considering Italy’s last 12 goals have all been scored by different players.
On Nov. 17, Crotia, which stınned Spain on Nov. 15, will travel to England.
Jedvaj’s late strike leaves Group 4 wide open ahead of its final fixture between England and Croatia. The victor will qualify, while Spain can still go through if the match at Wembley finishes in a draw.
Croatia was the deserving winner in Zagreb, where Jedvaj scored twice, his first international goals, to snatch a memorable victory at the end of a pulsating contest.
Andrej Kramaric had put Croatia ahead but twice Spain came back, as Dani Ceballos’ equalizer and Sergio Ramos’ penalty looked to have earned the visitors a point, before Jedvaj prodded in deep into injury-time.
Croatia will now head to London with a spring in its step while Spain is left to ponder back-to-back defeats under its new coach Luis Enrique, following a surprise loss with the same score at home to England last month.
