How Switzerland Qualified for Euro 2020
Switzerland boasts an impressive record of having participated in every major tournament since 2006, however they haven’t advanced past the last 16 since 1954. Manager Vladimir Petković will expect his Swiss stars to show what they did in qualifying, topping their group, ahead of Denmark and Ireland – losing just the once away to the Danes. Convincing victories totalling 10 goals against Gibraltar en route to Euro 2020 showed that when in the mood they can be a dangerous side going forward.

Turkey had a game at their disposal in qualifying, having made it to Euro 2020 before the last matchday. Pundits and fans took notice as Şenol Güneş side finished just two points behind world champions France – they also defeated the French 2-0 at home. The achievement was underlined by the best defensive record, boasting seven wins out of 10. Their one solitary loss inflicted by a plucky Iceland in Reykjavik, where far more talented teams have fallen in recent years.
