A missed penalty by new Arsenal signing Granit Xhaka in the penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw put Poland through and sent the Swiss home in heart-breaking fashion.
Tarashaj, still only 21, was low on the totem pole in the Switzerland side coming into the tournament and was not expected to play much and the only action he ended up seeing was as a late substitute during the group stages.
The forward, a January signing by Roberto Martinez who spent the second half of 2015-16 on loan back at Grasshopper Zurich, can now get ready to link up with his new Everton team-mates for pre-season, although he could get extended leave due to his involvement in the European Championships this month.

Hopefully he can come in and make a big impression on Koeman this pre season.

Wish I had a crystal ball like some on here.

History suggests that it's more likely he'll not make the grade than be the next huge superstar but I haven't seen anyone who's not prepared to give him a chance.
Are you being too negative about the negativity?!!

Oh my days. Nothing like giving anyone a chance.

Either you didn't or you clearly misunderstood it as the point is that everyone SHOULD give him a chance.
Oh my days indeed.
