Say Cheese as The Swiss Smile
Switzerland vs South Korea
Switzerland and South Korea have never met before the Germany 2006 World Cup Finals.
Switzerland improved their chances of finishing top of the group and meeting Ukraine in
the Second Round, when Philippe Senderos headed a goal from Hakan Yakin's free-kick, in
the 23rd minute. He headed with such determination, he almost broke his nose on the
France went ahead against Togo in the 55th minute, which would mean
that if Switzerland won here, South Korea would be out.
Switzerland's star striker, Alexander Frei, doubled Switzerland's lead
with thirteen minutes to go. The flag was up for offside but Argentinian referee, Horatio
Elizondo was nearer to the action and saw a defender cut out a square pass and actually
poke the ball through for Alex Frei; so not offside.
