Xhaka & Shaqiri Seal Comeback Win For Swiss

2018 World Cup Report: Serbia v Switzerland 22 June 2018

By SL International - Jun 22, 2018 10:00 PM

2018 World Cup 

Result: Serbia 1-2 Switzerland 

Date: 22 June 2018

Venue: Kaliningrad Stadium Switzerland came from behind to register a 2-1 win over Serbia in Group E thanks to second-half goals from Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Five minutes into the game, Aleksandar Mitrovic opened the scoring for Serbia with a towering header inside the box following a cross from Dusan Tadic, 1-0.

The match was lively in the first quarter of an hour, with the Swiss getting their chances but they were not clinical in front of goals.

Vladimir Petkovic’s charges were patient in their build-ups and that made things easy for the Serbs to keep their defensive shape.

However, the Serbs were limiting Petkovic’s men to long-range strikes, none of which troubled goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic.

Xhaka equalised for the Swiss seven minutes after the break with a superb left-footed strike from the edge of the box that sailed past the helpless Stojkovic.

Shaqiri nearly sent Die Nati ahead two minutes before the hour, cutting inside onto his favoured left foot before unleashing a strike that shaved the woodwork.

Serbia were pressurising the Swiss with 10 minutes to go but Die Nati were very dangerous on counter-attacks.

Switzerland profited from one of those counter-attacks as Shaqiri netted the winner in stoppage time following a galloping run on a break to beat goalkeeper Stojkovic.

The victory sees Switzerland leapfrog Serbia into second spot, while the latter drops to third ahead of their clash with Brazil next week.
