Switzerland's Euro 2016 Round of 16 clash started quite incredibly as Poland ace Arkadiusz Milic missed an open goal inside the opening 23 seconds. 

It's fair to say that Switzerland, who are yet to lose a game at Euro 2016, started very nervously indeed. 

The Swiss absolutely gifted Ajax striker Milic the perfect opportunity to take the lead, but he duly missed the target.

As you can see in the video below, Milic fired the ball way over the bar to the relief of the Switzerland back-line. 

Poland, of course, headed into the game as favourites and Switzerland's vulnerable start should only increase their confidence in the pursuit of glory. 


As it stands, though, with 25 minutes of the encounter gone, Switzerland have slowly but surely grown into the game. 

However, with Robert Lewandoski seemingly desperate to stamp his mark on the tournament, there's every chance that Poland will fire sooner rather than later.

What did you make of Milic's sitter? Have your say below!
