Switzerland kicked off their World Cup campaign with a 1-1 draw with Brazil. Then, they went on to beat Serbia in Round 2, boosting their chance of making it to the next round. Serbia started strong and looked very energetic in the beginning of the match, with Aleksandar Mitrovic scoring in the 5th minute. Switzerland had a hard time keeping up in the first half, but bounced back in the 52th minute, when Granit Xhaka equalized. They pushed harder after that, finally taking the lead late in the game after Xherdan Shaqiri scored what turned out to be the winning goal for Switzerland, significantly increasing his team’s chances of making it to the Round of 16.
The Swiss also feared that FIFA would deal them a massive disciplinary blow after both Xhaka and Shaqiri celebrated their respective goals by putting their hands together to form a double-headed eagle. The symbol is controversial and was thought to be inflaming tensions in the Balkans, with the players risking two-match bans. In the end, they got away with some hefty fines.
Meanwhile, Costa Rica was defeated two times in the group stage and will head home after this last encounter with Switzerland. They were beaten 0-1 by Serbia in their opening match and 2-0 by Brazil in Round 2. Their encounter with Brazil was particularly impressive, as Costa Rica put up a great fight and they were ridiculously close to getting a draw. Both of Brazil’s goals came in stoppage time, courtesy of Philippe Coutinho and Neymar.
Switzerland and Costa Rica have previously met two times, both scoring a victory. The Group E match will take place at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium.
