Euro 2024: Switzerland, Germany qualify for quarter-final

Switzerland on Saturday, became the first team to qualify for the quarter-finals of Euro 2024.

The Swiss defeated Italy 2-0 in Berlin to eliminate the holders from the competition.

Breel Embolo came close to finding the breakthrough even before Remo Freuler’s opener.

Italy lost possession from their own kick-off and when the ball reached the winger on the edge of the penalty box, he curled beyond Gianluigi Donnarumma and into the top corner.

Germany beat Denmark 2-0 in the other match. They will play either Spain or Georgia next.

Denmark had an opening goal ruled out for a marginal offside call then moments later VAR awarded a very soft penalty against them. Havertz netted from the spot before Musiala wrapped it up.
