    Swiss playing without Frei and Behrami. (two starters)

    If they get out with a tie it's good result for Swiss, will be disappointing for Spain on the other hand. I still have these two moving out of this group.

    I'm getting really sick of these low-scoring games. I don't wait four years for this! I feel like I'm watching Brighton and Hove against Dagenham and Redbridge.

    lol you're right Ronan.

    I think with the second and third game things will pick up, more attacking.

    is there a "stall" warning or penalty in WC play. For instace, can the keeper just "deliberate" for 2 minutes before kicking the goal kick?

    Wooooow. Big win for the Swiss.

    Dunno how the ref decided on five added minutes. There was hardly any wasted time in the second half and not much to speak about with injuries.

    The first half of the game was not very entertaining with Spain dominating possession but not creating chances. The second half was cracking.

    Del Bosque defends Spain tactics

    [​IMG]

    Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque said his side will not change their attacking style despite a shock defeat by Switzerland in World Cup Group H.

    The European champions were pre-tournament favourites to win the World Cup but Gelson Fernandes' goal handed the Swiss a win in their opening game.

    "We have arrived up to here playing a certain way and we will not lose our identity," said Del Bosque.

    That save by the Honduras goalie earlier was sick.
