This is the 55th Match in the FIFA World Cup at the Round of 16.
Date & Time of Match:
Tuesday, July 3
Sweden and Swizterland at 3pm.
___SCORE: Sweden 1-0 Switzerland___
61′ Yellow card Valon Behrami
60′ Xhaka miscues his attempt at a first-time shot from the edge of the box, sending it skewing to his left. What a waste of a great position.
58′ The scrappiest period of the game so far continues as both teams sit off each other a little. Both back lines have time on the ball, but there’s no clear passing route to goal.
56′ Neither side able to carve out a clear opening in the last few minutes, as the game gets bogged down in the middle third of the pitch.
54′ Shaqiri’s attempted Cruyff turn doesn’t come off as Forsberg pinches the ball from him and surges down the line. He’s then fouled by the Swiss winger, but the referee gives nothing and waves play on!
52′ Great play from Switzerland, who works the ball down the left for Rodriguez to cross, and a succession of corners and crosses follow as they pepper the Sweden box, but they can’t quite find a way through.
50′ CHANCE! The ball drops invitingly for Shaqiri inside the box, but a messy combination of defenders and goalkeepe
