Bryan Cristante, midfielder for the Italian team, didn’t mince his words at the press conference following Italy’s elimination by Switzerland in the last 16 of Euro 2024. Harshly critical of his team’s performance, Cristante stressed that Switzerland had dominated both physically and organizationally.

“There’s not much to salvage, they put us to shame physically and organizationally,” said a visibly disappointed Cristante. “It’s too early to draw any conclusions, we’re going home deservedly. Now we need to get our heads together and start again next year with a different attitude and energy.” Cristante’s criticism highlights the challenges facing the Italian team in their crucial match against Switzerland. Despite being the reigning Euro champions, Italy were unable to overcome the difficulties imposed by a Swiss team that was apparently better prepared both physically and tactically.
