Iniesta is the worst diver in the world. So sick of seeing his horrible flops.
Well done Switzerland but hope they lose to Chile who were great to watch, they will need to take their chances thought that is for sure.
Chile top and Spain second would be great for the tournament.
Well done to Switzerland and all, but they better now wise up and go out in the first round. Worst team to watch in the tournament, IMO.

In all fairness it was a triumph of tactics over talent. If the Swiss had tried to take on Spain at their own game they'd have come badly second.
It wasn't a bad game to watch either; admittedly if/when Switzerland play similarly limited teams it might not be such a spectacle, but I don't believe "lesser" teams' sole purpose is to lie down to have their bellies tickle and be patronised by the winning coach for trying to play the game in the right way.
Cameroon beat Argentina in 1990 with a masterful display of defence and barely restrained violence and that was the greatest result for football ever.

Why does the team have to have over a 90% win rate to be favourites?
