Was that Dzemaili miss really that bad or am I missing some other Swiss effort?

No. There was also but one "Big Chance" in there, according to Whoscored, anyway (Ekdal). But since the guys on telly yell "should have scored that" on everything, and make it sound **** easy to get balls on target, that's the damage.

I didn't see the Spain game but it wasn't like their attacking play brought lots of great chances against Iran or Portugal.

At least they tried. Can't blame them for not having enough quality.

Lift off!

Took a sizeable deflection though.

Finally a goal and in comical fashion it was a deflection right in line with the overall lack of quality in the final third so far in this game.

1-0 Sweden :thdn: 

 

Unlucky own goal by Akanji

That should really go down as an own goal but I guess, as pathetic a shot as it was, it was technically a goal bound effort.

Massive deflection the only way we were ever getting a goal.

Awful from Xhaka

Amazingly his first booking of the world cup?

Lindelöf really made that goal, great run.

Was just about to write this.

He can start preparing for the bench-warmer role now that Arsenal got Torreira.

As you say, it looked like being on target anyway, so I'd still credit it to Forsberg.

Was that Xhaka turning his back and sticking out a leg? 

I've heard Arsenal fans moaning about that for a while.

Awful awful defending :D

In my personal view it was more like a pass to keeper but FIFA disagrees.

Bugger, there goes my prediction points and to such a crap goal. 

Score Swiss, don't want to potentially face the Swedes.

I meant charging out at full pace and getting easily sidestepped for the goal, I'd be fuming at someone doing that in 5 a side :D

Ibrahimovic must be regretting retiring.

Can't see us having qualified with him in the team though.

Switzerland need to score, so on comes Haris Seferovic. :lol:

Embolo has done more since he came on than any other Swiss midfielder/forward.

Figured this would truly be one for the neutrals, but this is mostly nap time. Needs a leveling goal.

I'm desperately hoping there aren't any more goals, but this Swedish defence isn't half giving me a few scares.

I heard that he can ride a bike with no handlebars (if that is him).

We'll talk again after England goes out against one of them in quarter finals.

Looks like it will be Sunday Sweden then. Thanks for turning up.

Who is worse, Seferovic or Berg? 

Don't think I've ever seen either of them score, Seferovic always seems to make the Swiss tournament squads, which must say a lot about the other options.

Seferovic... Berg could at least get into positions to miss

Sweden has a very solid defence, but also Switzerkand aren't creative enough.

 

It's like closing down Shaqiri is enough to prevent them from scoring
