Switzerland in Manaus.
In the final Group E matches, Honduras take on Switzerland in
Manaus while Ecuador play France in Rio.
Honduras and Switzerland failed to score a goal
when they met in Bloemfontein
during the Group Stage of South Africa 2010.
This is the third match Argentina's Nestor Pitana has been in
charge of; the second in Manaus.
Switzerland got themselves off to a good start in Manaus; Xherdan Shaqiri scoring for the
Swiss after just six minutes.
Shaqiri doubled Switzerlan's lead, just after the half-hour mark, to increasing their
chances of joining France in the next round.
Shaqiri completed his hat-trick, in the 71st minute; to set the Swiss up for a drooling
encounter with Argentina.
