    The French national football team became world champions in 2018 during the FIFA World Cup in Russia, defeating Croatia at the time.

    The Swiss national football team knocked France out of the Euro 2020 last sixteen, defeating the French in a 5-4 penalty shootout on Monday.

    The shootout win followed a dramatic 3-3 draw after extra time, with France's Kylian Mbappe missing the penalty kick.

    The French team, currently world champions, marked the defeat in its Twitter account with a nod to Switzerland, with the latter now set to meet Spain in the quarterfinals.

    "It's over. Victory for Switzerland in the penalty shoot-out (4-5)", the French national team said in a tweet.

    ​The quarterfinals are scheduled to take place in the Russian city of St. Petersburg on Friday.
