Switzerland’s Haris Seferović slapped teammate Breel Embolo in the face before their penalty shootout win against France at Euro 2020 on Monday.
The Benfica striker scored twice as Vladimir Petković’s Swiss side came back from 3-1 down to take the round of 16 match to extra time at the National Arena in Bucharest.
It then went to spot kicks, with the underdogs progressing to the quarter-finals of the competition when Yann Sommer saved from Kylian Mbappé.
Before the penalties, Seferović gave Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Embolo a supposedly motivational whack across the chops.
Embolo barely responded, which may possibly be because he was so startled.
