Second half of ET

Switzerland get the final 15 minutes started. Switzerland have never won a penalty shootout at a major tournament. They could really do with settling this before then.

France vs Switzerland, UEFA EURO 2020: Switzerland has never beaten France in a competitive game. But Deschamps does have some injury worries, however. He said defenders Lucas Digne and Jules Koundé, and forward Marcus Thuram “won’t be available probably.” Defender Lucas Hernández has recovered in time from a knee injury. Switzerland has it’s own battle with history to deal with. The Swiss are hoping to end a run of three consecutive exits in the round of 16 at major tournaments.
