'I feel for Xhaka'

Switzerland 1-1 Poland (Poland win 5-4 on penalties)

Craig Burley

Former Scotland midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

I feel for Granit Xhaka and Switzerland, it was a poor penalty from the midfielder. The Polish ones were brilliant.

Poland looked tired towards the end of the game, Xherdan Shaqiri's goal looked like Switzerland could go on to win it from there but Poland did it.

'Outstanding'

Poland beat Switzerland on penalties

Mark Lawrenson

BBC football expert on BBC One

Never in doubt if you look at the Polish five penalties - absolutely outstanding. They deserved to win it on the penalty shootout alone.

POLAND INTO QUARTER FINALS

Switzerland were much the better side for large portions of that game, particularly since half time. But that's the way it goes. Poland looked like they were playing for penalties from a long way out and their risky strategy paid off.

What a penalty to win it! Poland will play Portugal or Croatia!

SCORES! - Switzerland 4-5 Poland

Grzegorz Krychowiak

It's there!

Absolutely smashed in and Poland are into the quarter-finals for the first time in their history.

GOAL - Switzerland 4-4 Poland

Ricardo Rodriguez

A stuttering run but a calm finish. The Swiss are still in.

Match point to Poland though now...

SCORES! - Switzerland 3-4 Poland

Jakub Blaszczykowski

Poland are potentially one kick away. Ricardo Rodriguez must score or Switzerland are out.

SCORES! - Switzerland 3-3 Poland

Fabian Schar

Fabianski dives early and Schar beats him with ease.

SCORES! - Switzerland 2-3 Poland

Kamil Glik

Another confident strike, this time from Kamil Glik. Poland maintain their advantage.

SCORES! - Switzerland 2-2 Poland

Xherdan Shaqiri

And another one. Cool.

SCORES! - Switzerland 1-2 Poland

Arkadiusz Milik

Rolled in. Simple.

It's a shank, he comes straight across it. He went for the laces and sliced the drive off the tee.

WIDE! - Switzerland 1-1 Poland

Granit Xhaka

Miles, miles wide. An absolute shocker of a penalty from the Arsenal midfielder. Advantage Poland?

Robert Lewandowski

He's supposedly lacking confidence, but that is cool from the big striker. Top corner.

PENALTY SHOOT-OUT

Switzerland 0-0 Poland

I'll reset the scores. Here we go...

WATCH AGAIN: Fabianski denies Switzerland again

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

Lukasz Fabianski has had a brilliant game. Can he prove to be the difference?

Danny Murphy

Former England midfielder on BBC One

It's taken a worldy to beat Fabianski today. I'd bet on him.

'Hope for the best'

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

Martin Keown

Former Arsenal and England defender on BBC One

Maybe Switzerland deserve to go through, they were the better team in extra time.

Now it is in the lap of the gods, you have to be positive, pick out a spot and hope for the best.

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

Both goalkeepers have their heads buried in an ipad as they presumably check out videos on the penalty takers. Swiss manager Vladimir Petkovic has his entire squad in a huddle. What on earth can he be saying now?

'DON'T MISS!'

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

They've barely had a shot for 60-odd minutes but Poland almost snatch it! Right-back Lukasz Piszczek steals in at the far post but his shot is blocked...

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

Craig Burley

Former Scotland midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

Not for the first time in this game, Poland defender Michal Pazdan has made a block or a brilliant decision to put the attacker off.

Meanwhile, Swiss midfield Granit Xhaka has everything you need to play in the Premier League. It looks like Arsenal and Arsene Wenger have the full package in the deep-lying midfield role.

GREAT SAVE!

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

Another great chance for Swiss sub Eren Derdiyok! Granit Xhaka sends the ball down the left, Haris Seferovic sends in the cross and despite having two swings at it Derdiyok can't steer it in.

If Switzerland don't win this they have every right to feel aggrieved...

Poland's last shot on target was in the 53rd minute. Backs to the wall job.

Penalties in T-5 minutes...

'Shaqiri the only man to see the pass'

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

Mark Lawrenson

BBC football expert on BBC One

What a chance that is. You'd argue that Shaqiri is the only man on the pitch who could see that pass. Great save, but you have to score from there to win games.

'Match winner!'

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

Craig Burley

Former Scotland midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

A match-winning save from Lukasz Fabianski, that is for sure.

GREAT SAVE!

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

Switzerland come forward again, probing and pressing away for a winner. Can they find a way through - oh great save!

They dink the ball over the top, Eren Derdiyok is free and meets it with a header but Lukasz Fabianski makes a blinder of a one-handed stop!

'Penalty killer'

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

The bad news for Poland is that one of Yann Sommer's nicknames is "penalty killer." Regularly a penalty saving hero. #SUI #POL

Xherdan Shaqiri is enjoying himself, when he gets towards the edge of the 18-yard box it will only take one heavy Poland leg for him to go over in the area.

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

We are 11 minutes away from penalties in a game that always felt like it would go to the shootout. Switzerland doing all the probing, not sure what Poland are playing at to be honest. 

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

There have been 42 efforts on goal this afternoon but it's still managed to be a fairly dull game. That takes some doing. Swiss centre-back Fabian Schar is invited to shoot from a good 30 yards and he can't resist, belting it over the top.

KICK-OFF

Switzerland 1-1 Poland

Back under way. Current office discussion is whether having four kidneys counts as an advantage or not.

This is where players start to think about penalty kicks. You don't want to make a mistake, but it is in your mind.
