Italy coach Mancini frustrated after Switzerland stalemate

Italy coach Roberto Mancini was frustrated after their 0-0 draw at World Cup qualifying opponents Switzerland.

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho saw his penalty saved by Yann Sommer, while Lazio striker Ciro Immobile missed a sitter.

“This is a moment when the ball just isn't going in. Once again, we had too many chances not to win this game," Mancini told RAI Sport.

“It's not the penalty, it's other situations, we need to be more determined, more clinical, more precise. Just like with Bulgaria, it's another match we cannot fail to win with that many scoring opportunities created.

“It was tougher in the second half, but we had the chances in the first half and the second, which means the team did play good football.

"It's a missed opportunity, exactly like on Thursday. Exactly the same."
