Euro 2020: Spain Qualifies By Eliminating Switzerland

Must Read

Trailing in the eighth minute and then reduced to ten men in the second half, Switzerland did better than defend themselves by taking Spain (1-1, 1-3 tab) to extra time before losing in the penalty shootout on Friday in the Euro quarterfinals.

Spain will face Belgium in the semi-finals of the Euro! In numerical superiority from the 77th minute, La Roja had to wait until the penalty shootout to qualify against Switzerland (1-1, 3-1 tab) this Friday night.

Immediately settled in the Swiss camp, La Roja did not wait long to open the score in this match. On their first chance, following a corner, the Spanish found the fault on a rebound of Jordi Alba, about twenty meters, diverted by Zakaria in his goal (0-1, 8th). A very sad beginning for the one who replaced Xhaka, suspended for this match. Not varnished in this beginning of match, the Nati lived a second hard blow with the exit on injury of Embolo in the 23rd minute.

Swiss attacking midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri, who scored the equalizer in the 68th minute, spoke about the elimination after the match.

“I’m really proud of the team. The penalty shootout is a bit of a 50-50 situation. I was nervous watching the penalty shootout. I think we just lacked a bit of luck today,” said the Liverpool player.
