Switzerland continued their impressive form under new manager Vladimir Petkovic after managing the second consecutive victory in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.
Switzerland had started the campaign with defeats against England in Slovenia. However, they appear to have recovered from these setbacks after managing to consecutive 4-0 wins over San Marino and Lithuania. Both these teams are considered as minnows and Switzerland were the overwhelming favourites to get three points. Many even expected the Swiss to score more than five past Lithuania. Midfielder Gelson Fernandes says that they were not able to score more since the opposition were extremely good and compact.
