SURPRISE: SWITZERLAND IN FRANCE OUT

I was over my head for 24 hours when I posted yesterday, there was no big surprise. I guess time loves
challenge. Guess who's the winner? I will let you figure it out if you are still thinking. We had two great matches today. Spain took care of business and Croatia tried but not enough to turn back the time.
This is the beauty with this sport, you think with your head, you score beautiful goals with your foot.
You run like crazy, you got tired and you run again till your time comes to score.

The first goal of the match is the part I wish they change in Football. No reverse pass to your goalkeeper. Absorb the pressure and jump to the offensive train. I know it will be a surprising journey cause all four teams score more than three goals today. 14 goals in one day from two matches. This is high class Football in the making. Spain did what it suppose to do by scoring two more goals in extra time to meet the winner of the next match of the day.

France is the favorite to win this Euro2020. First half it was a blackout since they did not score and Swiss was leading with a header and from there you can feel the air was sucked out of the building.
Sometimes in a match you can your opponent will lay down the match for you to win it all. That is not the case for France. They fought hard to come back but they did not contain the Swiss come back.

All 6 goals are really classy except Benzema second goal that looks like a hand over from Griezmann. Truthfully I thought France will advance after Pogba's goal. It was delightful and well kick with a stir to the right. I guess this goal messed up the game for the French. Swiss took over till penalty where Mbappe fell short of faking the goalkeeper. I guess where experience is lacking the Swiss advance.

It was high octane matches today. Crazy run mix with prowess you see intermittently. I hope the surprises of today stay today. At the same time it is hard to put light in the eyes of the game tomorrow.
No more France vs Spain, so It will be a match worth watching on Friday. This will be a big blip for the blue missing this golden opportunity to add more silver to their names.
I do not know who will play in the Olympics next month and next year World Cup. A reflection already starts and find the issue for one of the best team loss after a great achievement.

England vs Germany have to be epic. We cannot ask for less after today. Sweden vs Ukraine will entertain many. Most will bring their focus for England vs Germany. So many rich history behind these countries. Europe the birth of Football never ceases to carry this sport higher.
Have you find your golden match yet ? I think there will be more great meetings down the line.

It is actually painful. France winning this competition would actually increase the chances of Kante winning the ballon d' Or but then I guess this wouldn't be a possibility again. What a disappointing campaign for them.

Portugal out, France out, I guess new faces will triumph this year.
France should lock down the back and make sure defense was top notch.
It is harder to be up 3-1 and lose on penalty. Mbappe summer will be horrible.

Portugal was not a surprise for me. France is the real deal.
It will be the same for England and Belgium.
Spain could be going far this time.

Who would have thought this match was going to be the first major surprise of the Euro. I didn't expect Switzerland to play so well, and Mbappe's performance throughout the tournament was just so awful. A very sad match for the French players, better luck next time I suppose.

The penalty says it all.
Mbappe is a class act.
Pogba did a better presentation as a whole.
So much was riding on the back of the French players.

This match turned out to be very nice, a lot of emotion was lived in it and many things happened in this match, it is incredible how each of the penalties were executed in this match, until it was the turn of Mbappé that for his luck and that of his team was discovered by the Swiss goalkeeper.

As the penalties went by, it is getting a lot easier for the keeper to guess better. Mbappe went with power and lost. He should trick him and score.

You're right about that, I feel he also had to do some sort of dribble or something like that to distract the goalkeeper a little bit.

Really shocking to see France lose out at this stage of the tournament. Great performance from Switzerland holding off the world champions.

This year edition seem to be tilting towards an underdog surprising us all. Will it be Denmark, Czech or Switzerland? I guess we will find out

The truth is that after today the Euro teaches us that we have to defend until the last ball and even if they are superior, never be the winner without playing. Great game England vs Germany and this sport is beautiful. Switzerland becomes a big surprise by eliminating the big favorite to win the title.

It is more than luck with penalty.
It Has to do with precision and be on top of your emotion.
Mbappe did not realize that shooting the last penalty got a trick to it.
Fake the keeper to get the goal.
