Switzerland Not Up To It
Switzerland vs Honduras
Switzerland will reach the last 16 if they beat Honduras by two
goals; or earn a point, and Chile beat Spain. Honduras must beat Switzerland by at least
three goals and hope that Spain lose to Chile.
It was a slow start for Switzerland, considering they needed two
Spain scoring twice in the other game (against Chile) meant
Switzerland only had to score once to send the South Americans home.
A half-time Swiss substitution saw Hakan Yakin come on for Gelson
Chile pulled a goal back, forcing Switzerland to score two goals
again. And that never looked like happening.
