Um, this wasn’t, er, supposed to happen. I’m still rather bemused as to how brilliant, shining Spain, packed with the best players in the world, could lose to a workmanlike Swiss side, but it happened – even more shockingly, Switzerland deserved it. They were organised, ambitious and might even have won by more than a single goal. Spain’s players never really got going.
Spain should still beat both Chile and Honduras, and may even yet top their group and go on to great things, but it’s hardly an auspicious start for Xavi, Iniesta and co.
