The big match
Switzerland vs Italy
The Nati return to the international stage for the first time since their outstanding efforts at UEFA EURO 2020. Vladimir Petković’s men took France and then Spain to penalties, eventually bowing out to La Roja in the quarter-finals, to show they are not afraid to go toe to toe with Europe’s heavyweights.

Murat Yakin has taken the reins since, with Switzerland already boasting two wins from two in Group C, but his opener at the helm could not be tougher, welcoming an Azzurri side bidding to set a new European record of 36 matches unbeaten. The newly-installed continental champions will likely have to play a lot better than they did against Bulgaria on Thursday.
