  1. Two days in a row, Ryan Tolmich went to bed right after the first game, or he actually has a day time job. The headline said live commentary of Sweden vs Swiss and Colombia vs England. Two cents all lower case disappeared too today, haha!

    • How has Geiger embarrassed himself? This game was destined to be a CONCACAF scrapper and he is doing what he can.

  2. The English players looking like they’re about to cry.
    We all know there’s nobody weaker than the French but the English come pretty close.

  3. Elsewhere in Swedish football, Romain Gall with a goal and an assist for GIF Sundsvall as the Allsvenskan League started back up, 89 minutes in Sundsvall’s win.

  4. FINAL: Sweden does just enough to hold onto a 1-0 win. Forsberg with the goal as the defense puts together another clean sheet. England or Colombia await.

  5. GOAL SWEDEN! A big deflection, unfortunately for Switzerland. Shot banks off of Akanji and in as Sweden takes the 1-0 lead in the 67th.

  6. Big chance for Sweden in the 63rd as Forsberg gets a free kick from the left side of the box. It’s blocked, though, and the ensuing cross attempt goes out for a goal kick.

  7. Halftime: Tie game between Sweden and Switzerland, but not for lack of chances. Neither team brought their finishing boots that half. Plenty of chances, no end product as we remain scoreless.

  8. MISS SWEDEN! Back and forth stuff and it’s Sweden’s turn for a bad miss. Ekdal opts for a volley instead of a diving header just outside of the six. Need to put that on frame.

  9. MISS SWITZERLAND! Great chance for Dzemaili from the center of the box but it is up and over the bar. One of the best chances of the game.

  10. Pretty even game so far, at least when it comes to chances. Both teams with some solid looks. Only one very good save, but pretty tight overall as we move into the last seven or so minutes of the half.

  11. SAVE SOMMER! Great diving save from the Swiss goalkeeper. Volleyed shot puts Sommer at full stretch, but he tips it away. Huge save in the 29th minute.

  12. Chance for Switzerland now but it’s just wide of the post. Both sides looking solid through the first 15 minutes, aside from that one Switzerland miscue.

  14. Shot for Switzerland in the seventh minute, but it’s a comfortable save for Olsen. On the other end, Berg gets loose but absolutely skies the shot.
