“We’re sorely disappointed, the whole team is. We clearly wanted to do more. But we also congratulate the Swedish team as they have done precisely what they are very good at, and it has been enough to beat us. Once they score a goal, they’re an extremely tough nut to crack.
“We should have done better but were simply below par and not good enough to win the game. There was something missing in that match from us but in all the games Sweden have been involved in, their opponents have had a difficult time developing the emotions and momentum you need. In the last ten or 15 minutes, we tried to play with more emotion and it went better, I think. But in the end it wasn’t enough.” siad Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic,
