Soccer: Italy gets Portugal in WC play-off draw

Azzurri to play Ronaldo's team if both beat Macedonia, Turkey

(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 26 - Italy on Friday got the team it most feared, Portugal, in the World Cup play-off draw.
    Italy is the first semi-finalist in the third group, and will play Macedonia, with Portugal playing Turkey on the other side of the draw. If Portugal and Italy win they will play in the group final.
    In the first group the first semifinalists are Scotland and Wales, and in the second Russia and Sweden.
    Italy had been hoping to avoid Cristiano Ronaldo's side after failing to make it straight through from its group stage following two draws against eventual group winner Switzerland.
