Say Cheese as The Swiss Smile

Group G Match

Switzerland vs South Korea
Hannover

Previous Encounters:
Switzerland and South Korea have never met before the Germany 2006 World Cup Finals.

The Match:
Switzerland improved their chances of finishing top of the group and meeting Ukraine in the Second Round, when Philippe Senderos headed a goal from Hakan Yakin's free-kick, in the 23rd minute. He headed with such determination, he almost broke his nose on the defender's head.

Half-time: (1:0).

France went ahead against Togo in the 55th minute, which would mean that if Switzerland won here, South Korea would be out.

Switzerland's star striker, Alexander Frei, doubled Switzerland's lead with thirteen minutes to go. The flag was up for offside but Argentinian referee, Horatio Elizondo was nearer to the action and saw a defender cut out a square pass and actually poke the ball through for Alex Frei; so not offside.

Final Score:
Switzerland 2 - South Korea 0
