Italy defeated Switzerland 5: 4 after two defeats and reached the semi-finals of the FIFA Beach World Cup Paraguay 2019, which saw a meeting with Russia.
Noel Ott scored two high-quality volleys for Switzerland in the first half. In between was Josep Junior Gentilin’s low curlers. Swiss captain Mo Jaeggy sank his team with a single scissors kick with two goals.
However, the Italians did not let their heads off and scored an excellent team goal, with Emmanuele Zurlo and Dario Ramacciotti knocking off a low, determined goal at the start of the third pass. Zurlo gave the Azzurri the lead with a kick on the bike, but was quickly lifted when Philipp Borer hit right after the kick-off.
It was Zurlo who got the last word and scored at the last second with a scissors kick to complete the comeback and his hat-trick and win for Italy.
