Switzerland defended valiantly to hold Brazil to a draw in their opening match before a late Xherdan Shaqiri goal gave them the win against Serbia and the advantage going into the final game.
Despite exchanging goals late on, Switzerland did enough to share the spoils with Costa Rica and ensure they reached the last 16.
Switzerland have not finished in the top eight since 1954, while Sweden came third in 1994 but failed to qualify for the last two World Cups. Knowing they have already reached their expectations, these sides will have no pressure on their shoulders and can enjoy the occasion.
Sweden are unbeaten in their last three games against Switzerland (W1 D2) although their last encounter was in March 2002 (1-1). The Swiss’ last victory came in October 1994 in a Euro qualifier in Bern (4-2), it was under Roy Hodgson.
A risk-averse 90 minutes, cagey extra time, and for it to all come down to penalties.
