"We're delighted to have qualified for the semi-finals of a World Cup - it's not something that happens every day. We've beaten Italy, who are a great team, and to be honest I think we were slightly fortunate, especially in the first half, when they looked the better side. The key to winning was mental toughness, these boys have incredible determination. They can achieve anything." Dany Ryser, Switzerland coach
