Haris Seferović Goal Video: Watch Switzerland Player Score to Give La Nati the Win Over Ecuador

Switzerland beat Ecuador in stunning fashion on June 15 with a goal in the 93rd minute.

Ecuador had a nice possession but failed to capitalize, and several players stood around appealing to the referee, believing that one of their players was fouled.

The Swiss were off to the races, taking advantage of the lapse, and cut the ball down the field quickly.

A pass to the left side yielded a neat move then a cross.

Haris Seferović, cutting across the middle at just the right time toward the goal, hit the ball past the goalkeeper.

The game abruptly ended, leaving Switzerland with the win and three points in the standings.

More to come. For now, see story about the game from earlier via the Associated Press below.

Montero, Noboa fit to start for Ecuador 

BRASILIA, Brazil—Left winger Jefferson Montero and central midfielder Christian Noboa have overcome muscle injuries to make Ecuador’s starting lineup for the Group E match against Switzerland at the World Cup on Sunday.

Switzerland will play with its customary 4-2-3-1 formation, with 21-year-old Josep Drmic now the first-choice striker after a strong season with Nuremberg in Germany.

The Swiss are the seeded team in a group that also contains France and Honduras.


Switzerland: Diego Benaglio, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Ricardo Rodriguez, Steve Von Bergen, Johan Djourou, Gokhan Inler, Valon Behrami, Xherdan Shaqiri, Granit Xhaka, Valentin Stocker, Josip Drmic.

Ecuador: Alexander Dominguez, Juan Carlos Paredes, Walter Ayovi, Jorge Guagua, Fricson Erazo, Antonio Valencia, Christian Noboa, Carlos Gruezo, Jefferson Montero, Felipe Caicedo, Enner Valencia.
