The Swiss women’s national team suffered its first defeat in the second game of the World Cup in Herning, Denmark. Coach Colin Muller’s team lost 4-1 to Canada. A day after a 3-1 win over Japan, the Canadians were as strong as expected.
But the Swiss women fared well, at least in terms of results, against a formidable opponent. Goalkeeper Andrea Brindley, who knows how to convince with a catch rate of 91.3 per cent, has been a standout performance.
Thanks to Marty: There is hope
At half-time, Switzerland trailed 0:1 despite a clear shooting ratio – eventually it was 46:8 to Canada. Then, less than 92 seconds later, the world champion and Olympic champion cleared the scoreboard with a double strike. Seven and a half minutes before the end, Alina Marti reduced the deficit to 1:3. The Canadians answered the goal with a good minute to go with a fourth goal.
On Monday, Müller’s team will measure themselves against the next heavyweight: you can watch the match against USA live on the SRF Sport app from 6:50pm.
