The nation that managed to conclude the group stages of 2014 World Cup without suffering from a single loss as they defeated Iceland, Slovenia, Norway, Albania and Cyprus picking up at least 1 point in each of those matches was Switzerland.

Looking to be like this year’s ‘dark horses’ and underdogs the Swiss have made an impressive statement so far. Managing to step it into the pot where some of the highest ranked nations are currently allocated, expectations are slowly building up for Switzerland.

They did suffer however from a huge blow when losing 2-1 against South Korea in a friendly match on November 15th.
Playing in Seoul on Friday, South Korea received Switzerland in their hometown with the visiting team warming up and trying to decide on what the starting XI will be for the upcoming World Cup.

Switzerland took the lead in the 1rst half with Pajtim Kasami putting his side in the lead just after 7 minutes had passed.

When both nations entered the pitch to conclude the final 45 minutes of the match, South Korea found their equalizer through the defender Hong Jeong-ho as he tied the match 1-1 with a powerful header.

With just 5 minutes remaining Lee Chung-yong snatched the winning goal that edged the victory for South Korea.
This victory will be a big boost for South Korea as they had grabbed qualification spots for the 2014 World Cup and despite being ranked 56th in the world still managed to overcome a team located in the top 10 spots in the world according to the FIFA rankings.
