Switzerland came to the game with 2 changes, Frei & Behrami start the game. Both Swiss stars have been injured and missed the clash against Spain. Referee mark instantly Suazo after 1 minute, correct? Maybe if it would have been later in the game. Now he has to mark for every similar incident. In the 7th minute he wrongfully gave the Swiss' a freekick after Medel slipped and solved the situation, but the ref saw a foul.

Jorge Valdivia took his spot as the center attacker; however his ideal position is somewhat farther down the field, as an attacking midfielder. The game started, and Chile took commands right away.
