Before the tournament, Turkey was seen by many as a team that could go far, having beaten Orange 4-2 in the World Cup qualifiers at the end of March. However, at the European Championship, the team of national coach Shinol Güneş was greatly disappointed. After defeating Italy (3-0) and Wales (2-0), Switzerland also lost in Baku tonight, which ends, like Wales, with four points. Wales finished second due to the better goal difference: +1 to -1 for Switzerland. Xherdan Shaqiri was the star in Azerbaijan. The young Liverpool playmaker made it 2-0 with a nice shot with his weaker right leg and made it 3-1 after a superb counter-attack.
Seferovic’s keeper had already put the Swiss ahead in the sixth minute with a gentle pass from the left after Turkey had their first two chances in the match in the first five minutes. Fenerbahce midfielder Irfan Kan Kahveci made sure that Turkey scored at least one more goal in this European tournament, hitting the left flank in the 62nd minute. In search of an equaliser, Turkey forgot to defend and Shaqiri took advantage in the 68th minute. Midfielder Feyenoord Orkon was allowed Coxo (20) to attend ten minutes before the end of his seventh international match and for the first time in this European Championship, after he remained on the bench in the first two matches.
