Terrible way to lose, says Switzerland's Magnin

COLOGNE, June 26 (Reuters) - Switzerland defender Ludovic Magnin said their 3-0 penalty shootout defeat by Ukraine on Monday was a terrible way to go out of the World Cup.

'It's terrible. It's so sad to lose this way but football is not always fair,' said Magnin, who had played well and was reduced to tears as he contemplated their second round exit.

The Swiss missed all three of their penalties - the first time a team had failed to score in a shootout at the World Cup.

'It really hurts,' said Magnin. 'We played so well and then you lose the thing. Football isn't always fair. We can keep our head up and go home now. It's a giant frustration.

'We experienced something unique here. We're going home without giving up a goal. We fought like lions. We're just sorry that we didn't go further. Maybe we just didn't have enough experience. Next time we'll do it better,' he added.

Switzerland can now build for the future since they do not have to qualify for their next major tournament because they are co-hosting the 2008 European Championship with Austria.

'We've achieved a lot and I think the whole of Switzerland is proud of us,' said Magnin. 'Now we have to pick ourselves up and look forward to hosting Euro 2008.'
