Talking at a press conference after Switerland win Terim said: "This victory was important in terms of the self-confidence of the players. I congratulate my players because of their magnificient display on the pitch. We are still in contention for the next round and we have hopes. Switzerland are a powerful team and I think this win is an important one. I thought the rain would be an advantage for us but I didn't expect that heavy rain"
Terim added that Semih was an important player who always plays positive football and stays closer to scoring everytime. 1Tuncay is another key player for us. He almost ran for 90 minutes and challenged the opponents. Hakan Balta and Servet were successful at the defence. Hamit Altıntop seemed to lack some elements though he did his utmost." Terim added.
Addressing a question about Arda Turan who was selected the Man of Match, Terim said: "By chance he arrived in at my former team. Since I fielded him in the senior side, I expected him to improve his strength, stamina and technqiue. He will be a very important player for Turkey soon"
