Credited with a new show of strength, this Wednesday against Switzerland (3-0), Italy was able to rely again on an impeccable Donnarumma.
And 29! 29 matches without a setback for the Azzurri, who this Wednesday ahead of Switzerland also recorded a tenth international meeting without any goal conceded – a series unprecedented for more than 30 years for the italian selection. Not content with having thus validated their ticket for the knockout stages of the Euro (3-0 winners of the Helvetians, they had already dominated the Turks 3-0 five days earlier), the Transalpins can boast of having delivered a new part that can no longer be achieved collectively.
First bulwark of this Nazionale which does not fail, Donnarumma he alone has achieved eight of the 10 recently observed clean sheets. This Wednesday again at the cost of a beautiful parade in front of the Swiss Zuber. The Italian defensive quartet also perfectly assisted the young goalkeeper promised to the PSG. This despite the downside of the evening and Chiellini’s injury exit after just 23 minutes of play.
Locatelli, oh yes!
On the offensive, the Immobile and Insigne remained powerless for a long time – the first in particular having narrowly missed the opposing goal before his victorious kick at the very end of the game. So the transalpine midfielder had to provide the essentials at first. Locatelli in the lead, with his double signed on services from Berardi and Barella. As for Jorginho, in good metronome, it still shone by its sobriety and its sense of the game. A very beautiful Italian copy.
