the Swiss STUN French on penalties to eliminate them from Euro 2020 – .


THIS IS ALL OF BUCHAREST!
Switzerland shocked the world by knocking out reigning Euro 2020 world champions France on penalties following a mental match at the National Arena.

The Swiss opened the scoring in the 15th minute on a header from Haris Seferovic after a superb cross from the left from Steven Zuber.

Vladimir Petkovic’s men almost doubled their lead after 55 minutes when they got a penalty on a Benjamin Pavard foul on Zuber entering the box.

But Ricardo Rodriguez’s shot was saved by Hugo Lloris, who fell to his lower right corner.

After a horrific first half, France turned things around in just two minutes with Karim Benzema.

Benzema equalized with a beautiful strike, after a brilliant touch, in the 57th minute, then turned the tide with a header.

Paul Pogba appeared to have sealed the qualification with a screech in the 75th minute, but Seferovic put his country back in the game six minutes later.

Mario Gavranovic then did the unthinkable in the 90th minute, bringing the score to 3-3 with a nice shot from the edge of the box.

Nothing major happened during extra time so France and Switzerland became the first teams to shoot on goal in this year’s Euros.

All the Swiss players framed, the French stars also framed with the exception of Kylian Mbappe who was beaten by Yann Sommer in the decisive penalty.

Thanks for following the exciting action with us, have a great evening!
