Granit Xhaka could not contain his joy after Switzerland sensationally eliminated world champions France in the last 16 at Euro 2020, describing the triumph as “f****** amazing”.
Switzerland completed a remarkable comeback in a penalty shoot-out following Monday’s dramatic 3-3 draw in Bucharest, where Yann Sommer emerged the hero after saving Kylian Mbappe’s spot-kick.
Having opened the scoring and seen Ricardo Rodriguez’s penalty saved by Hugo Lloris early in the second half, Switzerland found themselves 3-1 behind with 15 minutes of regulation time remaining.
But Haris Seferovic netted his second of the game in the 81st minute before Mario Gavranovic’s last-gasp strike forced extra-time after cancelling out Karim Benzema’s brace and Paul Pogba’s stunner.
Switzerland’s shoot-out hero!
