Minute 2: Ludovic Magnin’s cross into the area is deflected into the arms of Portugal goalkeeper Ricardo.
Kickoff: Austria’s Konrad Plautz is the match referee today, and we’re underway!
Pre-Game: If you choose to follow us here, we will keep you up to date with the Czech Republic-Turkey clash in Geneva, the winner of that game advancing to face Croatia in the quarter-finals. If it ends in a draw, penalties decide it.
Pre-Game: Meanwhile, it’s wholesale changes for Portugal. Bruno Alves, Fernando Meira, RaÃƒÂºl Meireles, Miguel, Ricardo Quaresma, Miguel Veloso, Nani, and HÃƒÂ©lder Postiga are in Luiz Felipe Scolari’s starting line-up while Bosingwa, Ricardo Carvalho, Petit, JoÃƒÂ£o Moutinho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Deco, SimÃƒÂ£o, and Nuno Gomes sit this one out.
Pre-Game: Switzerland coach KÃƒÂ¶bi Kuhn, in his final match at the helm of the team, makes two changes to his team with JÃƒÂ¼rgen Macho on the bench and Pascal ZuberbÃƒÂ¼hler at goalkeeper. Also, Johan Vonlanthen is favored to a rather ineffective Tranquillo Barnetta on the left flank.
Pre-Game: Well, this match is for all intents and purposes a formality with Portugal having clinched first place in Group A and Switzerland already eliminated from the tournament. However, no host nation has ever failed to earn a point and the Swiss will want to go out in style while Portugal are resting a number of their regulars.
