30. Italy is now on a 30-game undefeated streak -- its longest since the 1930s under Coach Vittorio Pozzo -- that includes 30 shutouts. Coach Roberto Mancini's squad has gone more than 1,000 minutes without conceding a goal.


Mancini, whose team started the tournament with 3-0 wins over Turkey and Switzerland, will take a well-rested squad into its round of 16 game in London on Saturday against Ukraine or Austria. He made eight changes to his starting lineup against Wales. Game-winning scorer Matteo Pessina, the 24-year-old Atalanta attacker, was a late roster addition to replace injured Stefano Sensi. Pessina made his Euro debut coming on for the last three minutes against Switzerland.

With 4 points, Switzerland is well-poised to advance out of Group A as one of the best four third-place finishers
