Switzerland and Serbia entered halftime of their Group G match at the 2022 World Cup tied 2-2 in a crazy first half. Both teams are battling for a spot in the round of 16 and a win for either side would be huge in getting to the knockout stage. Switzerland got the lead back early in the second half courtesy of Remo Freuler.

This is a huge goal for Switzerland, since they would no longer need to depend on a Brazil win or draw against Cameroon to make the knockout round assuming they can hold onto this advantage. Brazil are currently in a 0-0 draw with Cameroon, and Switzerland could get in if they draw with Serbia and that game remains a draw. Freuler’s goal gives Switzerland a little bit of a cushion and helps with their margin for error, which is important as this stage of the competition where nerves can get the better of players.
