Euro 2024: ‘I Let The The Team Down’ — Akanji Reacts To Penalty Miss Vs England

The game ended in a 1-1 draw after extra-time.

Akanji was the only Switzerland player, who missed from the spot.

Breel Embolo opened scoring for Switzerland on 75 minutes.

England however fought back with Bukayo Saka netting the equaliser five minutes later.

“I feel like I let the team down, I feel like I let my whole country down. I try to take responsibility. I had the feeling that I was going to score, but yes I shot the wrong way and I was not precise enough,” he told reporters.

“I wish them (England) good luck for the tournament. Above all, I wish them not to get hurt. It is the most important. We’ll see how far they go.”
