Ruben Vargas Leads Switzerland to Quarterfinals with Crucial Goal Against Italy

Swiss winger Ruben Vargas scored a decisive goal against Italy, securing Switzerland’s spot in the Euro 2024 quarterfinals. Read about his pivotal performance and post-match reflections.

Bollywood Fever: Swiss winger Ruben Vargas answered his captain’s call during their Euro 2024 last-16 clash against Italy at the Olympiastadion, scoring just seconds after the break to secure a 2-0 victory, propelling his side into the quarterfinals.

The 25-year-old had already set up the opener for Remo Freuler eight minutes before halftime. During the break, skipper Granit Xhaka urged him to seal the match.

“Just before the second half, Granit said to me, ‘Please Ruben, score a goal, one way or another,’ and then I found myself on the ball a short while later,” a beaming Vargas told reporters after receiving his man of the match award. “I remembered what Granit said, him telling me to shoot – I shot, and I’m delighted the ball found the back of the net.”

Vargas’s goal early in the second half effectively eliminated defending champions Italy from the competition. He praised his team’s aggressive approach and relentless pressure.

“We caused problems for Italy because we were very aggressive, right from the word go. We had the better of every 50/50, we didn’t give them any time to breathe, we were constantly breathing down their neck,” he said.

Vargas and his teammates will be eagerly watching on Sunday as England takes on Slovakia in Gelsenkirchen, with the winners set to face the Swiss in Düsseldorf next Saturday.

“We know that the games won’t be easy – far from it. We need to focus on ourselves, and our performances need to be the crucial factor, regardless of who we come up against,” Vargas stated. “I’m very happy with the fact that we’ve made it through to the quarterfinals. I’m going to try to enjoy this and prepare as best I can for our next match – we want to go a lot further than this.”

With this victory, Switzerland not only advances but also demonstrates their potential to compete with the best in Europe, driven by standout performances like that of Ruben Vargas.
