Switzerland (3-0) Honduras

Why the Swiss are Rooting for France (UPDATE: Swiss Win & Advance)


France beat Switzerland 5-2. Now, the Swiss are counting on the French to win.

UPDATE: Switzerland secured it’s spot in the knockout stage with a 3-0 win over Honduras, who are out of the tournament.

Just as France is all but in to the Round of 16, Honduras is all but out – there’s a chance they could advance, but the scenario is very complicated, and the likelihood is slim. However, the prospect of advancing is much more realistic for Switzerland: if they beat or tie Honduras, and France beats Ecuador, they’re in. See if the Swiss can make it at 4 PM ET (8 PM UTC).
