Sweden vs Switzerland

Were you watching the games yesterday at 4 between Sweden and Switzerland? If you didn’t here are some highlights before the results.
A bit of history: Sweden and Switzerland have played 28 matches against each other so far and this will be the 29th meeting which will be the first in a major tournament.
Switzerland couldn’t manage to beat Sweden in their last 3 games in which the last one was in March 2002. (1-1) Their last victory was in October 1994 in a Euro Qualifier (4-2).
Sweden has only managed to progress to the second round of the #FIFAWorldCup once in 1994. They managed to finish third.
Outside of their own country, Sweden hasn’t managed to win back to back matches. They managed to do so twice when they were the hosting country back in 1958.
This is also Swedens 50th game at the #FIFAWorldCup which makes them the 11th team to reach this number. Mexico has featured in more games but never won the tournament.
Match highlights:
Markus Berg has made 13 shots so far for Sweden, most of any player but has yet to score a single goal.
Mikael Lustig will miss the quarter-final, if Sweden qualifies, for getting a silly yellow card at 31’ when he hauled his man down.
At halftime and a team has yet to score. The pressure is building and one team has to be able to move on to the quarters.
When level at halftime, Sweden have won each of their last three World cup matches. Switzerland, on the other hand, is winless.
Granit Xhaka, Swiss midfielder, has completed both more passes and more passes in the oppositions half than any other player in the match.
Valon Behrami from Switzerland gets a yellow card for dissent at 61’ and will also miss the quarter-final if they move on. And a goal gets scored by Swedens midfielder, Emil Forsberg, at 66’. He puts his efforts into the top corner via a massive deflection of the foot of Akanji. This was Emil Forsberg’s first World Cup goal after he’s tried 14 times so far.
Another yellow card for Switzerland when Granit Xhaka shows off his frustration at 68’.
at 73’ we see Switzerland substitute some of their players. Breel Embolo replaces Steven Zuber and striker, Haris Seferovic replaces Blerim Dzemaili.
At 82’ Sweden also make a bit of a change and substitutes earlier goal scorer Emil Forsberg with Swansea left-back Martin Olsson. Emil Krafth also replaces Mikael Lustig when he looks like he was struggling with a cramp.
Marcus Berg also steps off the field to make way for Isaac Kiese Thelin at 90’.
Stepping into extra time Switzerland has made 18 shots in the match so far against Sweden, the most they’ve had without scoring a goal in the #FIFAWorldCup.
A red card is awarded to Michael Lang, the Swiss defender, when he was the last man when he made the foul.
After an extra 7’ the end whistle blows and Sweden qualify for their first World Cup quarter-final since 1994.
