Lets take a look and see how Sweden got here. They were in a group amongst Germany, Mexico, and South Korea.
First match to open up their group, against South Korea.
Second Match was the infamous Toni Kroos free kick, that almost ended Sweden’s dreams.
Sweden’s third game was a must win, and they delivered the goods! Amazing performance against Mexico.
Sweden has used the same lineup, minus Lindelöf for Jansson In the first match against South Korea.
This was how they performed, via FotMob, against Mexico. They will presumably use the same lineup against Switzerland.
They’ll be looking to rely on Forsberg to create going forward, and Sweden will need to use set pieces to their advantage. Lets see if Sweden can ride that wave of momentum from their last win
Switzerland were in a group amongst Brazil, Serbia, and Costa Rica
First match, they played Brazil.
Second match was a THRILLING game, in which political ties were involved. Shout out Washington Post.
Their final group match, saw them draw Costa Rica, which was enough for them to advance, since Brazil beat Serbia.
Switzerland could land a dream spot in the Quarters, against either Colombia or England. Look for Switzerland to line up like this, how they did against Serbia. (Via FotMob)
This has proved to be an incredible World Cup. One of these two teams will deserve to be in the Quarters. Will be exciting to see the outcome of this match.
