Armenia must beat Italy, and get help to reach World Cup

Armenia's hopes for clinching its first ever World Cup birth is still alive following their resounding 2-1 win over Bulgaria.

The national team has the daunted task of going on the road to Naples and beating Italy - and then, get help from two other teams in order to clinch a spot for Brazil next year. 

While Italy has already secured its spot atop Group B, behind them are three teams still battling for a playoff place, one of which is Armenia.

Armenia will finish as the group runner-up if they beat Italy, and both Bulgaria and Denmark draw.

Bulgaria will finish second if they beat the Czech Republic, who can also finish second if results go their way.

Denmark will finish second if they better Bulgaria's result, or win by eight or more goals.
