It was an uneventful match where Switzerland were eliminated because of the inability to score any goals.
Both teams had a few chances and have a chance to make it out of the group heading into the match. Honduras had to win and hope for a Chile victory while the Swiss needed a win as well. Neither would happen and both teams are now eliminated from the tournament.
It was a match where the Swiss were in an unnatural position of sending players forward and attacking. The Swiss’ style is to play more defensive and look for chances on the counterattack. Probably the best chance for Switzerland was a header by Eren Derdiyok was just wide. Honduras’ best chance was from Edgar Alvarez but a great save from Swiss goalkeeper Diego Benaglio kept it scoreless.
Honduras failed to score one goal in their three matches while Switzerland only scored one.
