World Cup PREVIEW | Serbia v Switzerland

In what promises to be a critical World Cup tie on Friday evening, Serbia take on Switzerland in a game which could knock out one of the two teams.

Serbia’s draw against Cameroon kept them in the tournament and while Switzerland did beat the African side, they can’t afford to lose to their European rivals on Friday. A win for Cameroon against Brazil could spice up things further but the idea for Serbia is to just win and anything less than that knocks them out of the World Cup.
