“Euro 2020” .. Turkey leaves the tournament and Switzerland maintains its hopes


Xherdan Shaqiri scored two goals to lead Switzerland to a 3-1 victory over Turkey on Sunday against them in the European Football Championship “Euro 2020” and preserve their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages.

Turkey exited the tournament after three defeats, while Switzerland’s hope of qualifying for the round of 16 depends on being one of the four best third-placed teams after finishing the group with four points, like Wales. Italy won 1-0 against Wales, who finished the match with ten men.

Severovic’s goalkeeper opened the scoring for Switzerland six minutes later when he received a Steven Zuber pass and hit a powerful low ball with his left foot from outside the penalty area.

Switzerland strengthened its lead in the 26th minute, as the ball reached Zuber, who passed it to Shaqiri to set it up for himself and hit it strong without any chance for the Turkey goalkeeper.

Shaqiri added his second goal in the 68th minute when he converted a cross into the goal minutes after Irfan Kahn reduced the difference for Turkey.
