New Delhi : The Euro 2020 knockout drama continues as Spain defeated Switzerland in a nail biting penalty shootout to make their way to the semi finals.

Spain started brightly and scored right away, with Alba attempting a long shot that deflected off Zakaria and went in for the opener.

La Roja were the better team throughout the first half but couldn’t put together enough offense to find a second goal, and Switzerland were dangerous enough on the counter to show they were still in it.

And thanks to a bad mistake at the back between Aymeric Laporte and Pau Torres, the Swiss were gifted an equalizer and Xherdan Shaqiri didn’t waste it.

Spain will now face Belgium in the semi final game of Euro 2020.
