Switzerland came from behind to beat Serbia 2-1 in a pulsating World Cup Group E match this morning.
It was Xherdan Shaqiri who scored a last-minute goal in the 90th minute as they battled back from a goal down to beat Serbia.
Aleksandar Mitrovic scored the opening goal for Serbia in the 5th minute of play to put them into the lead 1-nil at halftime.
Granit Xhaka then replied with a goal for Switzerland to level their score in the 52nd minute.
The Swiss win puts them level with Brazil in a tightly contested group, with Serbia on three and Costa Rica down and out with no wins from their two games.
The group finale next week sees Switzerland take on Costa Rica, while Brazil takes on Serbia.
