FIFA World Cup 2022 Serbia vs Switzerland Live Scorecard: An intense end to a match that was one of the be World Cup classics in the first half, but somewhat slowed down in the second half Switzerland. However, goals from Embolo, Shaqiri and Freuler were enough to see them through to the last 16. Serbia was an entertaining team to watch but was not tight enough at the back to stay in this tournament.

Earlier, South Korea beat Portugal 2-1 in a dramatic clash at the Education City Stadium on Friday. With the clock ticking down on South Korea’s time in the tournament, striker Son Heung-min ran free after a Portugal corner in added time and slipped a pass to Hwang Hee-chan who fired past Diogo Costa to spark wild celebrations. Both Uruguay and Korea finished with four points and both had a goal difference of zero, but the Asian team scored four goals compared to Uruguay’s two.

Serbia XI: V. Milinkovic-Savic; Milenkovic, Veljkovic, Pavlovic; Zivkovic, S. Milinkovic-Savic, Lukic, Kostic; Tadic; Vlahovic, Mitrovic.

Switzerland XI: Kobel; Widmer, Akanji, Schar, Rodriguez; Freuler, Xhaka; Shaqiri, Sow, Vargas; Embolo.

South Korea need passion, cohesion and a bit of luck against Portugal

South Korea's Son Heung-min warms up with his teammates.

South Korea will have two things to offer when they face Portugal in their must-win final Group H game at the World Cup – collective dedication and passion – as they hope for a miracle to qualify for the last 16 on Friday.

The Koreans are third in Group H with one point and must beat Portugal to have a chance to progress to the knockout stage for the third time after 2002 and 2010. Portugal have already qualified but still need a point to guarantee top spot so might not field a reserve team at the Education City stadium. (READ MORE)

Ghana vs Uruguay: Black Stars hope to bury the ghosts of Soccer City and Suarez’s ‘Hand of Devil’ moment

Luis Suarez was as unremorseful on Thursday as he was 12 years ago. During the pre-match press conference in Doha, a Ghanaian journalist didn’t mince words in describing how the country felt about the Uruguayan striker. “Some Ghana fans feel you are the devil itself,” the journalist began, going on to say how the country was looking forward to his retirement before eventually asking him if he’d apologise.

Suarez, rather cheekily, replied: “(sic) I did handball the ball, but the Ghana player missed the penalty, not me. Maybe I would apologise if I did a tackle, injured a player and took a red card. But in this situation… It’s not my fault. I didn’t miss the penalty. The player who missed the penalty, he would do the same. It’s not my responsibility how he shot the penalty.” (READ MORE)
