The Red Devils have their sheep not yet in the dry. Switzerland won on the field of Iceland (1-2) and are thus on an equal height with the Red Devils, who have a match less played.
The pandoering from the first leg in Sankt Gallen was 6-0 – was clearly still heavy on the stomach of the Skandinaven. The Icelanders accounted for the good organization where the Swiss challenge. Shaqiri did his very best to the Swiss motor started but the midfielder from Liverpool got his attacking players not in contention. Even more, visiting goalkeeper Mvogo had a nice reflex need to Finnbogason of the opening goal.
Zero-zero on the rest and that was mainly for the Red Devils good news. But that came shortly after the tea change. Seferovic was on the second pole a little too much freedom awarded and that was by the striker of Benfica the best advantage: he nodded the opening goal via the underside of the crossbar beyond a grabbelende Halldorsson. Suddenly had the islanders own the game and that’s not necessarily their favorite activity. However, the header from Finnbogason on the hour, always had a goal been without the excellent rescue of Mvogo. But especially defensive crunched the Icelandic ship, and that was just past the hour again punished. Long made good use of the space provided for the second pole is simply the second Swiss hit against the ropes and down to the stairs.
Not that Iceland is not tried: a free-kick from Finnbogason was again the fists of Mvogo and when the same Finnbogason moments later, still delicious, was able to score, seemed like a return is in the making. The Swiss defence was, a ball from Sigurdsson was the line taken. Unfortunately for the brave home team but the score did them no more. Switzerland may still dream of groepwinst but it must be at home, his last race win of the Red Devils.
