Unluckily, the Germans topped Ukraine by one more goal in a two-zero triumph compared to one-zero for the Poles to win Group C. The tie with Germany was the 1st scoreless game of the tournament and the 1st time since the 2008 final that the Germans did not tally a score in a UEFA Euro match.

For the Swiss, draws rivalry Romania and host France kept the team from winning Group A. Like Poland, though, Switzerland played the French to a zero-zero draw in the final match in group play on Sunday, earning the esteem of some who doubted they could make it to the knockout stage.

These are 2 very solid apologetic squads that surrendered just one goal in 6 matches between them. That happened when the Swiss tied Romania one-one in their 2nd game in Group A play.
