Draw sends the Swiss pack­ing

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds -

SWITZER­LAND ...................... 0 HON­DURAS ........................... 0 HAV­ING beaten Spain in their open­ing, Switzer­land failed to score in their two re­main­ing games and crashed out.

Fail­ure to beat a Hon­duras side who had lost both of their pre­vi­ous games with­out scor­ing proved costly and the Swiss are out of the World Cup.

Hon­duras had the ball in the net in the clos­ing stages but sub­sti­tute Ge­orgie Wel­come saw his ef­fort ruled out for off­side, the as­sis­tant ref­eree’s flag prov­ing far from wel­come for a coun­try seek­ing their first ever vic­tory at a World Cup fi­nals.

Even the in­tro­duc­tion of Switzer­land’s record goalscorer Alexan­der Frei, who has 40 goals in 73 matches for his coun­try, couldn’t pro­vide the break­through.
