Poland beat Switzerland 5-4 in a penalty shootout in the first Euro 2016 last 16 clash on Saturday with new Arsenal star Granit Xhaka missing a crucial kick for the Swiss.

The match ended 1-1 after extra time with Poland winger Jakub Blaszczykowski putting Poland ahead in the first half before Sheridan Shaqiri's spectacular scissors kick brought the Swiss level in the 82nd minute.

The Swiss hit the bar and forced the Polish goalkeeper into numerous saves as the match wore on but just couldn't convert a chance.
