English Referee Anthony Taylor To Officiate Italy’s World Cup Qualifier Vs Switzerland

English referee Anthony Taylor will officiate Italy’s crunch World Cup qualifier against Switzerland, with Stuart Attwell as the VAR.

The game kicks off on Friday at 19.45 GMT at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome and currently the two nations are neck and neck at the top of the group.

They are divided only by goal difference, as Italy are on +12 and Switzerland +9, having drawn 0-0 on Swiss soil.

Taylor has been assigned to this match, assisted by Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn, with Craig Pawson as the Fourth Official.

The VAR is also English, Stuart Attwell, assisted by Paul Tierney.

Taylor was chosen to officiate the recent Nations League Final, which saw France beat Spain 2-1.

He has already overseen four Italy games, resulting in victories over Greece and Austria, the latter in extra time for the UEFA EURO 2020 Round of 16.

There were also a 1-1 draw with the Netherlands and 3-1 friendly defeat to France in October 2018, the second game under Roberto Mancini’s tenure.

Taylor has never officiated Switzerland at senior level, but his record with club and Under-21 sides is of one win, four draws and one defeat.
