FIFA World Cup 2022 : Italy vs Switzerland Football match report
Italy vs Switzerland : Italy tied the international record of 36 undefeated matches, but drew in Switzerland, putting the World Cup qualifiers in Group C in a balanced state.
The European Championship is a better team, but also a waste. Jorginho saw the penalty stopped in the second half.
Roberto Mancini’s team led the group with 10 points, 4 points ahead of the second-placed Swiss, but played two more games.
On the other hand, Germany and Spain have earned first place in the group.
This is where Italy found itself after winning a draw for the second time in a row, but gave it a place in the record book, ahead of Spain’s 35 matches (200709) and Brazil’s 36 matches between 1993. The record undefeated is the same as in 1996.
Chelsea midfielder Jorginho’s shot is an excellent opportunity for the Azzurri to secure a victory and get back on track after the disappointing 11th home draw with Bulgaria on Thursday.
But his efforts were blocked by Yann Sommer. After Domenico Berardi received a foul from Ricardo Rodríguez, Yann Sommer blocked his left side.
The next Group C game will be held on Wednesday, with Italy playing against Lithuania at home and Switzerland against Northern Ireland, which is ranked third.
