USA plays against Russia on a 4th day, it is probable that USA-Italy game on a last day of a group phase will be a game for a 1st spot, so you're reaching.
The team that plays Russia on a final day is Turkey, but we have no clue at this point if they're in a spot or willing to to manipulate anything.
Would have to win against Argentina and beat one of USA/Italy but not both.
If they won against none of USA/ITA, then they risk going to 4th. That's dumb just to get China out of the tournament (who are playing terrible)
If they won against both USA and ITA, then no way are they gonna lose that B1 spot and risk facing one of Serbia/Brazil just to get China out of the tournament.
