Switzerland face Spain in the quarter-finals of UEFA EURO 2020. Here you can find all the information on this match.
Switzerland take on Spain in the UEFA EURO 2020 quarter-finals in St Petersburg on Friday 2 July from 6pm CET.
“What a game! What a night of football!” said goalkeeper Yann Sommer after saving Kylian Mbappé’s decisive penalty to lead Switzerland to a last 16 victory over France. It was the first win for the Swiss in a knockout match at a major tournament since the 1938 World Cup and the biggest night in Swiss football history. Coach Vladimir Petković had still apologised for his team’s performance after the 3-0 defeat to Italy in the group stage. After the 3:3 against Les Bleus in Bucharest, he didn’t need to.
The Spaniards played with fire in the round of 16 after already leading 3:1 against Croatia. Zlatko Dalić’s team fought back and forced extra time. Luis Enrique’s team did not manage more than a draw in each of their first two group matches. After that, however, the knot burst. The Spaniards scored five goals in each of the next two games, the first team ever to do so at a EURO finals. But Sergio Busquets will warn his team-mates before the next game. After all, he and Spain lost their opening match at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in Durban against Switzerland 0:1.
