Domenico Berardi made an impact from the bench on Friday but his introduction wasn’t enough to see Italy past Switzerland, with Chelsea midfielder and Ballon d’Or hopeful Jorginho having a night to forget.
Donnarumma 5.5; Di Lorenzo 6.5, Bonucci 6, Acerbi 5, Emerson 6 (80′ Calabria n/r); Barella 5.5 (69′ Cristante 5.5), Jorginho 4.5), Locatelli 5.5 (58′ Tonali 6.5), Chiesa 5.5, Belotti 5 (58′ Berardi 7), Insigne 6 (80′ Raspadori n/r).
Player of the Match – Domenico Berardi
He had barely set foot on the pitch before his impact started to be felt, with both he and Sandro Tonali coming on to inject new life and pace into the game. He won the penalty late on after spending 30 minutes dragging the Swiss defence all over the pitch.
