Heartbreak for Shaqiri

Switzerlands' Xherdan Shaqiri.

Xherdan Shaqiri scored what could easily to be the goal of Euro 2016.

But the Swiss star couldn’t enjoy his brilliant bicycle-kick strike as his team were knocked out of the tournament after penalty shootout with Poland.

His 82nd minute goal, which cancelled out Jakub Blaszczykowski’s first-half goal and forced extra time, was all in vain as Granit Xhaka missed his spotkick in the 5-4 defeat.

The Stoke ace says: “It was a great goal but ultimately it didn’t prove much use. My goal pushed the team more, it was an important goal for me.

“It was a beautiful goal and I am always proud to score for my country, but we are out and I am disappointed.”
