Belgium led 2-0 in the ranking from Switzerland and entered the group win in the national league, but then the Swiss woke up and did not survive until it was 5-2.

Before Sunday in the final in Lucerne, Belgium lost only once in its 31 final match, and it was in the semifinals against France at this year's World Cup. Number one in the FIFA ranking asked to provide the owner of the group, but in an almost miraculous way, Switzerland scored 0-2 to 5-2.

Thus, the Swedes won Group 2 in the Division in the national league. It also means that they move into the semifinals that will be played in June next year.


After 66 seconds, the first scoring came. Nico Elvedi of the Swiss defense completely missed the crossover at his 16 meters. Thorgan Hazard came on for 1-0.

Later on, Belgium came to the counter-attack when Hazard got the ball on the right. Borussia Monchengladbach quickly hit the ball and from 16 meters hit Gladbach's colleagues Elvedi and goalkeeper Iann Sommerom in the longest corner.

With 2: 0 the Belgians looked comfortable, but after 25 minutes, he narrowly played another way. Ricardo Rodriguez was the first to reach the corner kick, but his header was blocked by Thibaut Courtois.

Two minutes before the break, the reversal was a fact. Edimilson Fernandes from right, played 45 degrees to Seferovic, who put the ball in the longest corner. It was his 16th player in 59 games.

With the result, the Swiss got more blood on their teeth and their eyes hoped to win in the group. One point that wants to throw Belgium out of the table. After 61 minutes, Shakiri broke through on the right, upping the score for Elvedi to 4 – 2, much to the home crowd's dismay.
