Bastian Schweinsteiger has left a warning for the Portuguese national team after Italy’s defeat in the World Cup qualifying play-off against North Macedonia.
“Okay, looks like I was unlucky yesterday, sorry Italy. North Macedonia also beat Germany last year…a tough team. Portugal must be vigilant”, wrote the former German international in Twitteralready after this Thursday he placed a photograph in support of the escadra azzura
Alright, looks like I didn’t bring too much luck yesterday, sorry Italy 😬
North Macedonia also beat Germany last year…a tough team. Portugal must be warned. https://t.co/6zeH0oqduC

Despite Portugal’s favoritism, Schweinsteiger’s advice should indeed be taken seriously. On March 31, 2021, North Macedonia won on German soil, 2-1, against the Germans who lined up with the usual starters.
