UEFA Euro 2020, Switzerland 3-1 Turkey: Switzerland beats Turkey to keep hopes alive
Haris Seferovic and Xherdan Shaqiri scored in the 6th and 26th minute respectively to keep Switzerland 2-0 ahead of Turkey at halftime. Irfan Kahveci scored for Turkey while Shaqiri added a second to take the Swiss side to a 3-1 win. Switzerland faces an anxious wait to see if it will make Euro 2020’s last 16 after Xherdan Shaqiri’s superb double helped it secure third place in Group A on Sunday with a 3-1 win over a dismal Turkey, which was sent packing after another defeat. The Swiss, who finished level on four points with Wales but behind on goal difference, will hope to secure a spot in the knockout round as one of the four best third-placed finishers from the six groups. Turkey regrouped and tried again, only to go 2-0 down 20 minutes later when Zuber found Shaqiri in a similar position, and he curled an exquisite shot beyond the despairing dive of Ugurcan Cakir. Turkey had its chances, but Swiss keeper Yann Sommer made a string of superb first-half saves as it searched for its first goal of the tournament. Irfan Kahveci finally delivered it, salvaging some pride for the Turks in the 62nd minute with a spectacular strike from a distance to reduce the deficit.
