Group H - Spain 0-1 Switzerland: Swiss shock kings of Europe

Switzerland pulled off the biggest shock so far at this FIFA World Cup™ as Gelson Fernandes's strike against the run of play earned them a 1-0 win against European champions and tournament favourites Spain in Durban. Vicente del Bosque's team predictably dominated possession but were hit on the break seven minutes into the second half as the Swiss recorded their first win over Spain in 19 attempts.

Unbelievable, the favorite and the champion of Europe lost their first match! This will be striking, and I have a bad feeling that they dont reach the second round.. Chili is a difficult match, like swiss!

Amazing amazing amazing. I can't believe it, my wildest dreams came true :D Now hopefully Switzerland can keep up the wins and get far in the Cup! If they can beat Spain, then hopefully they can do a lot more

I dont think Swiss will be go far. Swiss scored a VERY lucky goal.. and they had another good chance, but the rest spain made the game..

Remember last WC, they didnt recevieve any goals against. They were unlucky to loose in a penalty shoot out. Remember, Mourinho does evrything with his killing boring footbal. And he wins! So can Swiss

Saying a lucky goal is quite a understatement since they had many close chances but Spanish players are way too small.. against hard defensive team they are pretty hopeless.

Spain's Achilles Heel is Physicality, the same way the USA bullied them a year ago, it happened again
