yup, went out in the knockouts after a 0-0 draw with Ukraine, lost on penalties

Shocking defending, was obvious from the moment the commentator said they haven't conceded a goal from a free kick :D

1-0 Ecuador

Valenica scores after awful defending by the Swiss. That came out of the blue- Switzerland was actually quite good until now

Where's 0!!

No 0. 0 is null and void ^^ Hey, it's maths. No one said there was logic involved :D

I've not got the sound on (as I'm watching on iPad on the couch) so I don't know who he players are but Switzerland have looked shambollocks down the right. The full back bombing on like he's Dani Alves, but without any of the defensive positioning or team possession required to fill that role effectively, and the guy occasionally in front of him thinking he's Messi! They look really naive.

Shaqiri's gonna shoot every time he gets the ball, isn't he?

I think you're talking of Lichsteiner and Shaqiri, so yeah, your descriptions are spot on.

ITV commentator just suggesting that Ecuador have strength in depth because Jackson Martinez isn't in the starting line up...

Lichtsteiner plays with great defenders with us. That is why.

But DARE YOU NOT INSULT LICHTSTEINER!

Next to it, I think. Definitely not closer to the goal, though.

So what's the point of the spray around the ball if you're allowed to move it 30cm to the left or right? Player in wall was going crazy and rightly so.

Lichtsteiner IS GREAT!

He's defensively very poor.

I think Lichsteiner is a failed winger in a past life.

I missed the line-ups - is Valentin Stocker playing?

e: Oh he is. Good. I think he's a good player, Stocker. Better than Shaqiri, anyway.

I think the point is more that it's not put more closely to the goal, which disadvantages the opponent. I think that is why the officials think left and right are acceptable.

Surprising score so far. Switzerland was one of my dark horses.

Left and right is just an advantage if not more then moving it forward or back as it creates a better angle.

Haha, of course, it's Lickstoner. I should have recognised the haphazard positioning and dirty Italian-style foul he committed on the Ecuador left winger.

Djourou's fault.

Eh? You're blaming Johan Djourou for Stephan Lichtsteiner being a poor defender? :confused:

No idea how that works. Bit harsh on Djourou, if anything :lol:

man these ecuadorians sure like to play it out from the back, they always go for the dribble :D

Glen Johnson would fit in perfectly.

not really sure about it being a shock score in all honesty, European teams are going to struggle a bit more with the conditions and so far any South American V Europe game has gone in favour of the South Americans
