World Cup Qualifiers: Switzerland drew with Italy in Group C 

Italy and Switzerland drew 1-1 to keep their points totals level at the top and the winner of Group C will be decided on the final day of World Cup qualification. In the 12th minute of the football match, Switzerland took the lead following a tense start. On the break, Noah Okafor sprinted down the left wing and put a fantastic pass directly into the path of Silvan Widmer, whose fierce effort from beyond the box soared past Gianluigi Donnarumma and into the net.

Italy progressed in the game. Soon after, Nicolo Barella had a golden chance to equalize from close range, but Yann Sommer stopped his strike at point-blank range to retain the Swiss ahead against the odds. However, a blunder by Sommer gave Italy a well-deserved path back into the game. 

The goalie ran out to save a free-kick shortly before the break, but couldn’t get close enough to stop Giovanni Di Lorenzo from heading in into an empty net. Italy remained on top for the first half of the second half, but clear-cut chances were hard to come by as Switzerland seemed content with a draw.

A deflected shot from Lorenzo Insigne caused considerable concern in the box with 15 minutes remaining on the clock. Italy was on the verge of celebrating, but Sommer’s brilliant reflex stop kept things level. With two minutes to go, VAR was called to check a penalty shout from Domenico Berardi, and Anthony Taylor pointed to the spot after a pitchside review.

Jorginho was sent in, but the Chelsea midfielder blasted his shot over the bar, forcing Italy to settle for a point. Watch football highlights as Switzerland drew with Italy in an attempt to qualify for World Cup to be held in Qatar.
