Lineker's tournament verdict: Switzerland

By Gary Lineker
BBC's Match of the Day presenter

Ahead of the tournament, I'd said much would depend on the form of striker Alexander Frei.

But all the talk was merely of him spitting at England's Steven Gerrard, such was the distinct lack of flair he showed with his feet.

Looking back, it all started well for them. They impressively held Croatia to a 0-0 draw.

But, although they frustrated England for a while, they were simply in a class below.

Likewise France were made to work initially before it all fell apart at the seams for the Swiss.
