Macedonia striker Goran Pandev: Italy just went through motions

Result Candreva on target as Italy secure win

The Azzurri now need a point in Albania on Monday to be sure of a place in the World Cup play-offs, although that could be granted today if Bosnia don't beat Belgium.

The result, coupled with Spain's 3-0 win over Albania, ensured that Italy will finish second in Group G although they are not yet certain of making the playoff round. Macedonia has been eliminated from a chance at participating in the next World Cup but Italy is in a contested battle with Spain for the first-place spot out of Group G.

"We lacked that conviction and confidence that you always need on the pitch because that gives you the certainty in your movements".

They were made to pay for their sluggish second-half display when Palermo forward Aleksandar Trajkovski lashed home in the 77th minute to claim a memorable point for Igor Angelovski's side. I had moments that were positive and negative, like all coaches. We have a match waiting for us in Albania (tomorrow) before the play-offs and we'll go out there to play.

"I think the whistles were an expression of disapproval by the crowd and they were in response to how we got on".

Macedonia will likely sit deep and look to soak up Italian pressure, but the hosts should have more than enough to breach any rearguard action.

Justin Turner's big night fuels Dodgers to 1-0 series lead
It will be crucial to not let these strengths be eclipsed by the weaknesses, as the club looks to go up 2-0 on Arizona today. He matched his career high with 218 strikeouts, walked 71 and was selected for the National League all-star team.

However, after last night's shock draw to Macedonia, it's inconceivable to think he'll have the opportunity to see the contract through.

Italy failed to click after halftime and were given a first warning when Gianluigi Buffon had to smother a header from Ilija Nestorovski.

"Maybe we thought that we're better than we are, even if a 1-0 win wouldn't have changed anything and a draw just extends a cycle that we need to get out of fast through pride, determination and a sense of responsibility".

"I went off to avoid taking any risks", said the 36-year-old. We have to show more determination on the pitch, we want to go to Russian Federation.

Buffon has been the captain of Italy since the retirement of former colleague and World Cup winning skipper Fabio Cannavaro in 2010.
