    Looks like Poland is content with a coin toss to determine the winner.

    Fabianski saved them. Poland were so bad in the second + extra time.

    Great victory by Poland despite Nawalka's ineptitude. He got terribly outcoached.

    Whoever win between Croatia and Portugal ,they are in semi--final 100%. Switzerland was way more dangerous than Poland today. That player who miss 2 clear chance in extra time was tragic figure,not Xhaka.It's now or never for Croatia.

    The Swiss deserved the victory. However without Schar they had no chance in the QF so I'm ok with Poland winning.

    Poland is a cohesive team and somewhat well organised not to be pushed over easily, but they are still limited in the offensive and creative side of the game.

    I hope that a more expressive team like Croatia (or even Portugal) will defeat team, QF's is as far as teams like Poland should go.

    They were really missing Kapustka; he gave them a lot of creative impulses in support of that slick Lewy-Milik duo. They also could've opted for more creative options around Krychowiak in the middle.

    I feel like Poland chose an overly pragmatic strategy for this game and are capable of a lot more.

    Yeah, I forgot about him. We'll see what happens in the future games(s).

    If that's what it takes, I'd like to see Poland go down a goal, for them to be more imposing.

    Poland should have wrapped up the game before half time. And then Clattenburg should have sent off Schar. Nawalka should have made changes more quickly given his side had two days less rest.

    Anyway Switzerland are a terrible footballing team. Incredibly negative at every tournament they go to. Fingers crossed Poland are back on the way up.
