Italy Squad Pay Special Visit To Children’s Hospital In Rome

The Italy squad visited the children’s hospital in Rome today and brought along the UEFA EURO 2020 trophy.

The team arrived in the Capital ahead of Friday’s crunch 2022 World Cup qualifier with Switzerland, which kicks off at the Stadio Olimpico at 19.45 GMT.

The Azzurri stopped off at the Bambino Gesù children’s hospital to visit the patients and staff.

They brought along a very special memento of the summer, the trophy that the Italy players lifted at Wembley Stadium when beating England to win the European Championship.

The little patients prepared a banner to wish the Nazionale good luck, while Italy will use the game against Switzerland to help raise funds for the hospital.

There will be 200 employees of the hospital attending the game at the Stadio Olimpico on Friday evening as special guests.

An appeal to have the capacity of the Stadio Olimpico expanded to 100 per cent was rejected, so COVID restrictions remain and it will be at 75 per cent capacity.

That means there will be circa 52,000 people attending the big match between Italy and Switzerland.
