Switzerland national coach Vladimir Petkovic did not want to cheer too early after the final group victory at the European Championship against Turkey (3-1). “But I think a total of 4 points should be enough for a place in the eighth finals,” he said. “We can’t do anything in the coming days. We have to wait and see, but I am optimistic.”
Switzerland hopes to advance to the last sixteen as one of the four best numbers 3. “We assume that the other teams are doing their sporting duty,” said Steven Zuber. The midfielder of Eintracht Frankfurt brought in three assists in the game with the scoreless Turkey. Man of the match was nevertheless Xherdan Shaqiri, who scored twice in Baku.
“After two games without a win, it had to happen in this game,” said the Liverpool midfielder. “I am proud that it worked. Now we have to see what this victory is worth for the rest of the European Championship.”
