Gianni De Biasi, Albania coach
We needed a good start and that didn't happen. The pressure got to us and for 20 minutes we were under par. Once you concede it is that much more difficult. The key moments were the goal, the red card – unfortunately it was a very fair sending-off – and three big misses, most prominently the last one for [Shkëlzen] Gashi. We didn't have the luck today.
It's very difficult to really get across to the players beforehand the mindset and emotions – what it's going to be like on this stage for the first time. It affected them a bit. For the goal there were a whole host of things that went wrong, complete with a defender slipping over. By about the 20th minute we were back to normal but the damage was done.
Granit Xhaka, Switzerland midfielder and man of the match
It was special for my family here, with two brothers playing on different sides. It was great for us too – if perhaps a bit more special for me than him. Albania are terrific, very solid. They are very dangerous and had two big chances. There was a lot of pressure on the two of us but me and my brother really gave 110%. There's a lot to be proud of.
