To your attention the review of the day of World Cup 2018 for July 3.

Sweden – Switzerland 1: 0

Sweden for the first time in almost a quarter of a century entered the quarterfinals of the FIFA World Cup. The ball, which flew into the net after the strike of Emil Forsberg, brought the Scandinavians a minimal victory (1: 0) over Switzerland in St. Petersburg.

From the very beginning the match was very closed. Sweden adhered to its tried and tested recipe: sit down deeper into its gates, defend itself and look for happiness in counterattacks. Switzerland held the match a little more actively, more possession of the ball, but the wait-and-see tactics of the team of Janne Andersson proved to be more productive. Moments, and one and the other team was a little, but the Swedes eventually ordered better.

Most of the match rivals waged something like a war of attrition, but gradually the tension grew, it became clear that the decisive moment was not far off, and only a bad implementation for the time being allowed to keep zeros on the scoreboard. In the end, the fortune chose its favorite: the Swiss left Forsberg without guardianship on the penalty area, and he struck a blow, justifying the advances that were issued to him before the tournament. Manuel Akandji made a desperate attempt to hit the ball, but the one from the defender’s foot flew into the goal. Sweden – in the quarterfinals!
