Serbia dominated the first half with Aleksander Mitrovic and Dusan Tadic wreaking havoc among the Swiss defence. But the fact that they got just one goal out of that period of dominance went on to bite them in the second half. Switzerland slowly clawed their way back and Granit Xhaka’s screamer somewhat turned the tide. Switzerland started dominating possession and putting the Serbian defence under pressure. Xherdan Shaqiri then kept his calm in a one-on-one situation with the keeper and stroked the ball home to make Switzerland the first team to come from behind this World Cup. Serbia could have qualified had they won this match and they now have to win their last match to qualify now. That last match, is against Brazil.
