Switzerland were defeated 1-0 and will be heading home, while Sweden advance to the quarter-finals.

"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," Petkovic told reporters at the post-match press conference, and congratulated Sweden with their victory.

He added that Switzerland should have done more to win, but the team was "were simply below par and not good enough to win the game."

Sweden will face Colombia or England in the last eight.
