Liverpool star Xherdan Shaqiri has reacted to Switzerland’s incredible win over France at Euro 2020.
The winger was taken off in the latter stages of the second-half, when the Swiss were still looking to claw back the score-line from 3-1 down.
But what Shaq saw from the bench – he’ll never forget it. Switzerland struck in the 81st and 90th minute to level the playing field against the world champions.
Both sides, clearly knackered, held their own in extra time – but neither looked overly likely to score.
The penalty shoot-out was a fairly tame affair with nine of the ten players putting away their spot-kicks with ease.
Unfortunately, for France and their fans watching, Kylian Mbappe failed to covert his chance, with Yann Sommer getting a strong hand to the young striker’s effort.
Neutrals enjoyed a thrilling game – not the first of the day as Spain beat Croatia 5-3 in a dramatic fashion too! – but it was heartbreak for the PSG superstar.
Shaqiri took to Twitter some time after the full-time whistle to react to Switzerland’s win, which was the first time they’ve defeated France and made it to the quarter-finals at a major tournament.
