Video: Chelsea midfielder Jorginho misses penalty for Italy against Switzerland as hop-skip technique fails star

In the 52nd minutes into the Italy’s world cup qualifier against Switzerland, on Sunday September 5, Chelsea ace Jorginho missed a golden opportunity to fire his nation ahead before they slumped to a goalless draw.

The the referee pointed to the spot after fter Ricardo Rodriguez slid down and sent Domenico Berardi to the floor, and Jorginho was left to step up and take the key role he holds for club and country.

He however, called upon his usual hop, skip and jump technique, but Yann Sommer never fell for the trick as the brilliant Swiss stopper dove down to his left and collected a poor strike.

The 29-year-old’s setback could have big implications for Chelsea, Jorginho failed to score from the spot for the Blues on three occasions last season, out of a total of 11 attempts at club level.

Given Sunday’s miss, and the fact that it marks back-to-back misses for the specialist after he was thwarted by Jordan Pickford in the penalty shootout of the Euros final, maybe it’s time Chelsea change.

Watch the video below:

Thomas Tuchel may want to seriously consider removing the midfielder from his duties, even if it’s just temporarily, as the boss will face criticism if he stays as the taker and misses his next spot-kick.
