Swiss see off Tico comeback to progress

The tightly contested battle nearly went into overtime but Switzerland scored the decider too late for Costa Rica to respond


Switzerland saw off Costa Rica 4-3 to secure passage to the 2015 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup quarter-finals. Goals from Dejan Stankovic, Noel Ott and Stephan Leu put the Swiss in a comfortable position before Costa Rica fought back to level the scores through Jose Mendoza, goalkeeper Vladimir Adanis and Greivin Pacheco. Philipp Borer was the Swiss match-winner, just over a minute from time.

 

Stankovic got things started for the Swiss with a wonderful free-kick less than three minutes into the game, and Ott made sure Georg Klauser had little to alter as the first period ended with a commanding two-goal lead for La Nati.

 

The Swiss victory means Italy also progress to the last eight, and the two European sides will learn their opponents when Group A concludes on Monday with Argentina, Japan, Portugal and Senegal all still potential quarter-finalists in Espinho.
