Switzerland vs Turkey 1-2

Turkey coach Fatih Terim heaped praise on his players after they came from behind to beat Switzerland 2-1 – knocking out the hosts in the process.

Terim said: “It’s not easy to come back from a goal down at this Championship, considering we hit the woodwork once.

“But we fought a lot in the second half and we created many opportunities. God willing, we will win against the Czech Republic and reach the next round.

“It is a wonderful feeling that we have won this game in this way.”

Turkey can now join Group A leaders Portugal in the quarter-finals by beating the Czech Republic in their final game and Terim added: “This win has given us a lot of confidence for the last game. Today is the beginning of the Euros for us.

“The players needed this for their confidence and I congratulate them on their incredible effort.”

The first half of the game in Basel was played in a torrential downpour that made conditions farcical at times and Terim admitted he was desperate for the rain to stop.

“I did wish for the rain to stop. I did pray to God for that,” added the former AC Milan coach.

“We couldn’t predict mud in the middle of the summer.

“It was not easy, the conditions were difficult and Switzerland are a very strong team, playing at home. So was an important win.”
