At Euro Under 21, Switzerland’s showered hopes

Nobody expected this, and the main stakeholders probably even less than the others. Three days after starting the European Under-21 Championship with a victory against a formidable England (1-0), the Swiss team lost in their second match, this Sunday in Koper, against the Croatia (3-2).

While a second success in a row would have ensured their qualification for the quarterfinals of the tournament, this setback obviously does not do their business. On the last day of Group D on Wednesday, Switzerland will most likely have to get something against a very good team from Portugal to hope to continue the adventure.
