“When you arrive at this stage of the competition, anything is possible. But for sure you have to respect your opponents,” said Hugo Lloris.

“We are looking forward to this match because we know the loser will go home,” he continued, quoted from the official UEFA website, Monday (28/6/2021).

“Our (player’s) talent will influence our efforts against high-quality opponents, who have achieved a lot in recent years. We have great respect for the Swiss team.”
