Interviewed by “La Gazzetta dello Sport”, former Switzerland vice-coach Antonio Manicone offered an insightful analysis of the upcoming Round of 16 clash between Italy and Switzerland. According to him, it will be an even match.

Manicone underlined Switzerland’s form in this tournament, describing them as the most in-form team at the moment: “Switzerland are the most in-form team in the tournament, and they never make mistakes in their approach to these tournaments. It’s a question of mentality, preparation and awareness.” He also touched on the internal challenges faced by Swiss coach Murat Yakin during qualifying: “Yakin had some management problems in the dressing room during qualifying, but he put things right.” Luciano Spalletti and his men have been warned. Even if they start as favourites, given the quality and history of the two teams’confrontations, they will have to put in a good performance to qualify for the quarter-finals.
