The Swiss giving themselves a fighting chance in this tournament with the win over the whipping boys Turkey. Shaqiri may be a bit part player at Liverpool but he constantly scores the wow goal for Switzerland almost every other tournament. The second goal by the Swiss was a collector’s item once again. Giving credit were it is most due, Turkey were positive creating their best chances in this match than they did in the whole of the previous two. Kahveci and Under were good although they found Sommer in terrific form in the first half. Kahveci’s goal equaling or bettering the one from Shaqiri.
Kahveci’s goal could be more important than people realize. This goal keeps the goal difference of the Swiss in the negative. When the final league of those teams that finish third is constructed, this could be detrimental to their chance of finishing in the top 4 of that one.Not even the third goal ,scored again by Shaqiri on the quick break,was enough to see the Swiss at least level up their goal difference and are now stuck at minus one. Wales and record breaking Italy are into the last 16.The Italians going 30 unbeaten with a win over the Welsh and are now over 1000 minutes without conceding a goal. They will take some beating.
