Giovanni Di Lorenzo maintains Italy would be ‘more worried’ if they didn’t create chances rather than continually waste them after a 0-0 draw in Switzerland.

This is the fourth consecutive stalemate after 90 minutes, as they needed penalties to beat Spain and England at UEFA EURO 2020, then were held 1-1 by Bulgaria on Thursday in another World Cup qualifier.

Switzerland 0-0 Italy: Jorginho penalty miss proves costly

“There are certainly regrets, as we had so many chances and didn’t finish them off. We can take the performance, at the moment the ball isn’t going in, but we can build on this for Wednesday,” Di Lorenzo told RAI Sport.

“It’s just not going in at the moment, perhaps it’s a lack of determination or precision, but we’d be more worried if we didn’t create the opportunities at all.”

Jorginho had the biggest chance to win the game in Basel, but saw his weak and central penalty saved by Yann Sommer.

“That was an important incident, but there were other situations where we should’ve scored and didn’t too. Jorginho gave us joy so many times, it didn’t happen today, but that’s natural.”
