Xherdan Shaqiri scored the 2-0 goal for Switzerland vs. Turkey in the framework of the third date of Group A of Euro 2021 at the Olympic stadium in Baku. The popular "Swiss Messi" showed off a spectacular shot to ensure the Swiss qualification for the next round of the continental competition.

As the 26 minutes ran and Switzerland led 1-0 with a goal from Seferovic, Xherdan Shaqiri received a pass from Steven Zuber with a view to taking a shot. The "chocolatier" did not hesitate for a moment and with a great shot shook the Turkish nets. The marker did not move more in the first half.

“Xherdan Shaqiri (2016 and 2020) is the FOURTH player to score with shots from outside the area in TWO editions of the European Championship, after Zidane (2000 and 2004), Nuno Gomes (2000 and 2004) and Michael Ballack (2004 and 2008) ”, Published the statistic 'MisterChip' about both the Liverpool player.

Switzerland, with a point from two games, and Turkey, with an empty box, will culminate their adventures in the group stage of the Eurocup with the need to add a victory to stay alive in the competition and reach the round of 16. At the moment, neither of the two teams have shown that they deserve to go to the round. In group A, along with Italy and Wales, they have played erratic football that has practically sent them to the canvas and, now, on the horn, they will try to fix all their problems in just ninety minutes.
