Spain's soccer team boss Luis de la Fuente can see the positive side of an adapted knockout mode at European Championships without extra time. "In a tournament like the European Championship, which demands so much, you could perhaps do away with extra time," said de la Fuente ahead of Tuesday's semi-final against France.

"Maybe not in a semi-final or a final, but maybe in the previous rounds," said the 63-year-old. Players under a lot of pressure who are at their limit could be relieved. "That would also help the show, because the players would be much fresher and would play the later rounds in a fresher state," he said.

Three quarter-final matches in extra time
At the Copa América, there is only extra time of 2 x 15 minutes in the final. In the previous rounds, a draw after regular time is followed by a penalty shoot-out.

In the European Championship quarter-finals, only the match between the Netherlands and Turkey was decided in regulation time. All other matches had to go into extra time at the very least. Between Portugal and France and England and Switzerland, the match was only decided in a penalty shoot-out.
