Euro 2024: Switzerland Can’t Underestimate Italy  –Materazzi

Italy World Cup winner Marco Materazzi believes it will be to the disadvantage of Switzerland if they underestimate Italy in the Round of 16 of the ongoing Euro 2024.

Recall that both teams will clash on Saturday at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin.

In a chat with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Materazzi stated that he has been impressed with their performance at the tournament.

“There are no longer favourites and it’s never easy to beat Switzerland.

“Yakin can rely on footballers who play in the Italian, German and English leagues. It’s a balanced team with good players and a goalkeeper like Sommer. Underrated, but experienced.

“They impressed me against Germany for their confidence and shape. However, Italy’s problem can’t be Switzerland. Italy must make sure they are not the problem,” he continued.

“If we go through, there can be an open highway even if they’d better not think about it, or it would become a narrow path. We saw one in 2006, leading us to the game against Germany. This looks easy, but it’s not.”
