Spain win the first corner of the game, out right, and the set-piece swings all the way back to Jordi Alba on the far side. He launches an on-target volley, one that Yann Sommer would have covered had his teammate not stuck out a leg to try and deflect it away.
Instead, the outside of Zakaria’s boot changes its course and buries it into the top-left goalkeeper. Spain erupt in sheer delight; Switzerland look dumbfounded. La Roja lead in Russia!
Xherdan Shaqiri is away down the left wing, bringing down a booming delivery from Ricardo Rodriguez, and it takes a long time for the linesman’s flag to surface.
The Liverpool man was a mile offside there; you could have driven a bus through the gap between him and the defender.
That could be a very promising flank for Switzerland to pepper throughout however.
It’s a lively encounter so far, with sparky runs down both wings, but you’d say Switzerland might just be shading these early exchanges.
All eyes will be on how high they press without Granit Xhaka – and whether they can exploit Spain’s back-line when the occasion arises.
The whistle goes and we are underway in the first of our Euro 2020 quarter-finals!
Both of these team had extra-time thrillers to get through last time. Perhaps they’d both like a less exhaustive encounter on this occasion?
Of course, both would take another half-hour and penalties if it meant they make it to Wembley and the semi-finals.
