World Cup qualifier: Italy set new unbeaten record..
Italy broke the world record for the longest unbeaten run in international football with a goalless draw at Switzerland on Sunday, while Germany got their World Cup qualifying campaign back on track by thrashing Armenia 6-0.
European champions Italy should have taken all three points, but Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer saved Jorginho’s second-half penalty.
“We had too many chances today not to win the match… We have to be more clinical and more precise.”
The draw, however, extended Mancini’s side’s unbeaten run to 36 matches, breaking the previous mark they shared with Brazil and Spain.
Italy are bidding to banish the memories of their shock failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
The group winners automatically reach next year’s finals in Qatar, with the runners-up heading into the play-offs.
