Granit Xhaka says his penalty miss which saw Switzerland eliminated from the European Championships won’t put him off taking penalties in the future.
The Arsenal new boy sliced his spot-kick wide, and with Poland scoring all of theirs, Xhaka’s miss proved decisive.
Speaking to Swiss television afterwards though, he insisted it wouldn’t affect him in the long-term.
“Anyone who knows me knows that I will make sure I come back even stronger,” he said.
“I took the penalty the way I always do. But I didn’t connect properly with the ball. I am still a young person, only 23. This just makes me stronger.
“And I promise I will step up at the next penalty shootout.”
