National delight at World Cup result
The Swiss press is ecstatic this morning following the team’s 1 all draw against Brazil in their opening World Cup game.
The Tribune de Genève says it’s ‘worth gold’, 20 minutes says the result is a ‘dream start’.
The five times world champions seemed to have the game in hand after scoring 20 minutes and dominating possession in the first half.
But a 50 minute header from Steven Zuber threw the Swiss a lifeline and ultimately gave them a much needed point.
In the crowd was Swiss president Alain Berset – he says the team is strong enough to have a successful World Cup campaign. The aim is to reach the quarter finals of the tournament.
