Stu Forster/Getty Images(BRASILIA, Brazil) — Haris Seferovic scored less than 30 seconds before the final whistle, giving Switzerland a 2-1 victory over Ecuador on Sunday afternoon. The game-winning goal came in stoppage time on a counter-attack and mad dash down the field.
The game was deadlocked for the majority of the second half with both teams looking for a go-ahead strike. As Ecuador put together a last second attack, Michael Arroyo was dispossessed by Valon Behrami who immediately sprinted downfield. Knifing through the middle of the pitch, and maintaining control through multiple defenders, Behrami eventually got the ball to Ricardo Rodriguez. It was Rodriguez who sent a low cross to the near post where Seferovic blasted a shot into the top of the goal from four yards out.
Ecuador held a halftime lead thanks to Enner Valencia’s header on a free kick in the 22nd minute. Joslip looked to have knotted things up but was called offsides and the goal disallowed. Admir Mehmedi would find the equalizer for the Swiss, heading home a corner in the 48th minute.
