Jorginho misses a penalty and Italy equals the record of the world drawing with Switzerland

Basel v Switzerland: Jorginho missed a penalty in Italy’s 0-0 win against Switzerland in Sunday’s World Cup qualifiers, a result that means Roberto Mancini’s side equaled the record world streak of international matches without defeat. Italy has not lost in 36 consecutive games, equaling the record of Brazil recorded between 1993 and 1996. Italy could have come out victorious if Jorginho had scored a penalty in the 52nd minute, but the Swiss goalkeeper saved the Chelsea midfielder’s attempt. Italy had more chances to snatch the win, but in the end they settled for a draw, to stay in lead group C with 11 points in five games, four points clear of second-placed Switzerland in ranking, who played three games.
