Switzerland sadly leaves Euro 2016

The friendly footy crowd at Paddy's on Saturday afternoon
It was so sad to see Switzerland get beaten by Poland in the first Euro 'last 16 clash' on Saturday.

They went out in a heartbreaking 5-4 penalty shootout, especially miserable for the fans following the spectacular scissor kick of Sheridan Shaqiri in the 82nd minute. Wow, what a strike - for me, the best goal of the tournament so far. 

We were enjoying the game at Paddy O'Brien's Irish Pub in Winterthur and the whole place erupted, it was fantastic. And then the TV screen showed the square behind Manor in Winterthur, just 500m down the road, jumping up and down with delight. It was a great moment.

I am going to miss cheering the Swiss team on. It's just not the same supporting England in public here. Although I am looking forward to seeing the England game from the comfort of my on home later on tonight. Come on England!!
