“I am proud of my team with all the players,” Petkovic added. “They gave everything. Unfortunately, the red card made our game difficult in the last stage and overtime. But my players deserve to keep going. We already knew they were champions, because they had already achieved something great. We come home with pride despite losing on penalties. That was a lottery “.
Although the European Championship quarter-final victory over Switzerland took a penalty shootout, goalkeeper Unai Simon thought Spain was a deserved winner. However, this success must be quickly forgotten. We need our full focus for the next match. We haven’t gotten there yet.”
In the win in the previous match against Croatia, Spain initially fell behind due to a fatal error by Simon. “I also had to quickly erase this mistake from my memory. If you can’t do that, you can’t continue. Fortunately, we were able to recover just as we overcame difficult periods against the Swiss.”
According to Simon, Spain now has only one goal. “This is winning the European title. Take a break every now and then and enter the semi-finals with confidence. Then he should be fine.”
