1-1 game on!

Again, with the defending from set-pieces.

This has probably been the most uneventful match of the tournament so far. Quite typical of two teams slugging it out for the 2nd place.

Ecuador most of the time seems like they can only play well in Quito. Anywhere else, they look horrible.

Both him and Inler are just so unimaginative. They have zero ideas going in the midfield apart from Shaqiri.

Don't try to rationalise it. They miss a perfectly good chance to win it and then the whole team just falls asleep when the ball goes up the other end.

Switzerland deserved the win and Riccardo Rodriguez, just wow. Seldom can a fullback dominate a game, but he certainly did. The officiating thus far has just been atrocious though.

Ditto. On the other hand, Shaquiri was awful as he only can be. Most of Swiss team was bad however I have already watched many times if they play against an inferior team, they play on a really level low and if Switzerland play against a top team, they are ridiculous good.

Shaqiri was Switzerland's only threat up front, but lacked any help. I'm genuinely surprised to have seen Xhaka play so poorly, but him playing in the hole was just silly anyway.

Would really prefer to see Switzerland play a 4-3-3 as the shape changed dramatically throughout and lacked fluidity.

I change my mind. Switzerland won't pull off a dream run without a legit striker. Shaqiri isn't good enough to do it all.

Both Shaqiri and Xhaka seem to have got stuck in their development btw (I hadn't seen much of them last season)..
