The seventh game of Round of 16 in the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia will be between Switzerland and Sweden.
Switzerland got a lot of stick from the media, as they were ranked sixth in the FIFA World Rankings. With Spain, England and others behind them, it seemed absurd for them to be classified that high up.
However, the team silenced all their critics and justified their stance by showing commanding displays in the tournament. When they played Brazil, it was apparent that they were the better team that day. They won a gritty game against Serbia and drew against a charged up Costa Rica.
Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka have thrived under the roles of be
ing the main men of the team. They work well in tandem with their teammates.
Meanwhile, Sweden made their way into the Round of 16 after demolishing Mexico with a 3-0 scoreline. The team who were so unlucky against Germany avenged themselves in the next game.
In the unlikeliest of circumstances, it was Mexico and Sweden who made it past the group stage and defending champions Germany who had to bow out. This shows the pedigree the Swedes have within their ranks.
A lot of talks of Zlatan Ibrahimovic were done before the tournament, but captain Andres Granqvist and co focused on the job at hand. They have been one of the better sides in the tournament, and their opponents now know they can’t take them for granted.
