"I just hope it's not going to be our last game at this tournament. As for now we are focused on the upcoming game [against Sweden]. Penalty shootout? I am not thinking about it, but yesterday we saw two penalty shoutouts, so this can happen. I hope we will manage [to win] in 90 minutes. But if it comes to the penalties, I am ready to take this responsibility," Xhaka said.

Switzerland are looking to reach the World Cup quarter-finals for the first time since 1954 and will face Sweden in St. Petersburg on Tuesday.
