Shaqiri overjoyed after bagging a brace in Switzerland victory

Liverpool forward Xherdan Shaqiri was delighted after helping Switzerland claim a 3-1 victory over Turkey on Sunday.

The win saw Switzerland secure third place in Group A after collecting four points with the team set to be amongst one of the best third-placed sides.

In an interview with beIN Sports, the player said: "I think we played like a unit, and it was crucial today against this team. We knew if we play good we're going to create a lot of chances against this team, and we did so.

"We're very pleased with the win today and very happy. The other team, they have qualities, they can score any time. We could have scored maybe one or two goals more, for sure, but at the end of the day, it was important to win the game and we did that."

"[I'm pleased] especially the first one with my right foot, it was a really good technique. I'm very happy and very pleased that I could help the team with my two goals and that we reacted after the defeat against Italy, it was very good today. I'm very pleased with the performance of the team."
