Euro 2024: Switzerland Seal Emphatic Win Against Cupholders Italy

Switzerland ended Italy’s disappointing Euro 2024 campaign with a 2-0 defeat in Berlin, marking their exit from the tournament’s second round.

The Azzurri, who had triumphed in Euro 2020 with an adventurous style, struggled throughout this tournament, culminating in a lackluster performance against a dominant Swiss side.

Indeed, the one good thing about their Italy‚Äôs Euro 2024 campaign is that it was brought to a mercifully premature end by Switzerland on Saturday evening, with Murat Yakin’s side sealing a fully deserved spot in the quarter-finals with a shockingly comfortable 2-0 win.

Truth Live News gathered that Switzerland won against Italy for the first time in 16 years, capitalizing on dreadful defensive lapses to secure a comfortable victory.

It was Remo Frueler who opened the scoring just before halftime, exploiting Italy’s defensive vulnerabilities.

Shortly after the break, Ruben Vargas added a second goal, highlighting Italy’s defensive frailties once again.

The loss at the same venue where Italy clinched the World Cup in 2006 made it more painful.

Manager Luciano Spalletti’s tactics were heavily criticized as key players like Federico Chiesa and Nicolo Barella failed to make an impact.

Switzerland’s convincing win sets them up for a quarter-final clash, leaving Italy to reflect on their underwhelming performance in Euro 2024.
