Honduras 0-3 Switzerland – World Cup Group F – 25th June 2014
A superb hat-trick from Bayern Munich’s Xherdan Shaqiri secured a precious 3-0 win for Switzerland against Honduras on Wednesday night, a result which sees the Swiss reach the knockout stages of the competition.
Shaqiri opened the scoring on just six minutes, courtesy of a superb long-range strike before the stocky wideman added another on 31 minutes and then a third in the second-half. Josip Drmic was the architect of Shaqiri’s second and third goals as the Europeans comfortably overcame a Honduran side which end the tournament without a point.
Switzerland now face Argentina in the last 16.
