The Swiss were on top for large potions of the game with England and could consider themselves unlucky to be on the wrong end of a penalty shootout. A miss from Manuel Akanji proved to be decisive though, sending Switzerland home at the quarter-final stage.

Group A – Matchweek Two

Group A
Date Fixture Ground
19/06 Scotland 1-1 Switzerland Cologne Stadium, Cologne
*All times BST

Switzerland will have been hoping to secure their spot in the knock-out stages against Scotland but in the end the two teams played out a 1-1 draw in Cologne with Xherdan Shaqiri scoring el Nati’s equaliser in the first-half.

Group A – Matchweek Three

Group A
Date Fixture Ground
23/06 Switzerland 1-1 Germany Frankfurt Arena, Frankfurt
*All times BST

Switzerland have presented Germany with a problem over recent years. El Nati have now gone four games unbeaten against die Mannschaft and they almost won this game. Switzerland were able to take the lead against Germany and it looked, for a long period, that they would top Group A after claiming victory. A 92nd minute goal from Niclas Fullkrug gave Germany the advantage and prestige of topping the group.

Round of 16
Date Fixture Ground
29/06 Switzerland 2-0 Italy Olympiastadion, Berlin
*All times BST

For the third European Championship in a row, the defending champions fell at the last 16 stage as Italy were comfortably dispatched by Switzerland on Saturday. Italy head home having shipped more goals (5) in four matches at Euro 2024 than the four they conceded across the entire tournament three years ago. The Swiss, who beat France at this stage in 2021, deservedly march on, with either England or Slovakia awaiting them in the last eight.
