Switzerland collected 18 points from eight matches. Meanwhile, Italy is only in second place with 16 points.
Switzerland itself has just undergone a test match against England at Wembley Stadium, Sunday (27/03/2022) early morning WIB. It was at this moment that some of their supporters unfurled banners mocking Italy.
In the qualifying round of Group C, Italy and Switzerland met twice. The Azzurri were unable to win at all over the Rossocrociati.

The second meeting was held at the Stadio Olimpico, 12 November 2021. At that time the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
