Switzerland seals World Cup spot

13 November 2017

For the second time in four days, Rodriguez proved decisive as Switzerland clinched their two-leg playoff tie 1-0 on aggregate.

That suited the Swiss just fine after their 1-0 win on Thursday in Belfast, and 0-0 draw was enough to see Switzerland punch their ticket to Russian Federation 2018.

Switzerland's marauding full-backs, Rodriguez and Stephan Lichtsteiner, had largely been subdued but the latter broke from defence into the Northern Irish box at the start of second half to set up a Zuber chance that Hughes blocked. They should have killed off this match rather than hanging on desperately at the end, hoping their visitors did not take it to extra time.

The set-ball specialist is one of Europe's top left backs although he now finds himself in a struggling AC Milan side and had the misfortune to give away a decisive penalty when they lost the Milan derby last month. We don't always have top-level players but we have top-level characters.
