Having equalled a world record 35-match unbeaten run last time out, Italy went one better to take it all for themselves as they drew 0-0 with Switzerland on Sunday evening to claim international football’s longest-ever unbeaten run as their own.

Much like the opening two games of Euro 2020 – both of which the won 3-0 – opted for Sassuolo’s on the right of his front three at the expense of Federico Chiesa, despite his excellence in the draw against on Thursday.

In what was a relatively even affair and a far cry from the 3-0 hammering handed the Swiss in in June, nothing could split the two sides on this occasion with missing a penalty.

stay top of Group C with a four-point lead over Switzerland, though they have played two games more than their neighbours.
