Half-time Serbia 1 – 0 Switzerland As they withdraw Shaqiri and Mitrovic, who has been remarkable, have a talk around an off-the-ball crash at a corner in the first half. Is it true that it was pondering, Mitrovic getting Shaqiri in favour of his head? Mitrovic is accounting for himself, putting forth the defence that it was a mishap.

Dzemaili misses a chance to equalise. Schar discharges Rodriguez on the left, and he plays a brilliant ball along the turf that Dzemaili turns past the post. Shaqiri slides a shrewd go through to Dzemaili, who doesn't shoot regardless of having a clear sight of goal.

A high boot from Milinković-Savic gains him a yellow. He cuts the toe of a Swiss player. Matic reserved for thumping into Lichtsteiner close most of the way. Somewhat unforgiving, that. A thump down from Mitrovic to Tadic, who swipes over the bobbing ball delightfully and sends his shot bubbling right finished the banish from 20 yards.

Sitting tight now for the second half.
