Head coach of the Swiss national team Murat Yakin spoke about the sensational victory over Italy (1:0) 1/8 finals of Euro-2024.

"We have all got our friends and family with us tonight. The players will decide how they will spend their evenings, but they will not be going out partying: they are consummate professionals. I hope this is not the end of the road for us and we can keep making history.

It was a crucial goal. It's nice that it's not a forward who is getting a goal but a midfielder who always helps us with his movement.

All of this support shows we are on the right track. We deserve to have made it this far and we want to show the same conviction and strength in the next tie. Winning this match in this manner is hugely rewarding: you could see that in the eyes of the fans who were celebrating tonight.

There are only good sides at the EURO. We showed we can go toe-to-toe with big teams like Germany and Italy. But we are focused on ourselves. We don't want to be distracted by our potential opponents. We sent out an important signal tonight about how we can play; we didn't just club together and defend, we dominated the game." quotes Yakin for UEFA.com.

In the quarterfinals of the European Championship, Switzerland will play against the winner of the pair England - Slovakia.
