    Stephan Lichtsteiner’s Switzerland slip to their second successive Euro 2016 qualification reverse while Federico Mattiello and the Italy Under-20s lose 2-1 to Poland in the Four Nations Tournament

    Stephan Lichtsteiner played 90 minutes as Switzerland suffered a second consecutive defeat in yesterday evening’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia.

    After succumbing to England in September, Vladimir Petkovic’s men continued their faltering start to Group E by stumbling in Maribor thanks to Milivoje Novakovic’s penalty 11 minutes from time.

    The Swiss will hope to get their first points on the board when they travel to face San Marino on Tuesday night.

    Over in Lublin, Federico Mattiello and the Italy Under 20s were also on the losing side following a 2-1 reverse to Poland in the Four Nations Tournament.

    An early Uryga goal on two minutes was levelled up by Manconi at the start of the second half, only for Frankowsky to tip the balance in the hosts’ favour six minutes from time.

    Tests against Switzerland and Germany in March and April respectively remain for Alberico Evani and his youngsters, who currently sit second in their four-team group on three points.
