The Swiss national team celebrates its second victory in the second match of the U-20 World Cup in Canada. After the opening win against Finland, Marco Bayer’s team also won against Latvia. The Swiss prevail 3: 2 on penalties.

The two points are a princely bonus for Switzerland, because for a long time it seemed that they would go empty-handed against the still winless Latvians. Latvia maintained a 2-1 lead until the 59th minute, after converting the perfect start for the Swiss team with a goal from Louis Robben (9) in their favor until the second half. But then the Swiss took the whole risk and replaced goalkeeper Kevin Bashi with a sixth field player. Courage has been rewarded. Just 12 seconds later, Canadian Junior League player Rodwin Dionisio equalized with a fine shot from the blue line.

In the penalty shootout, all of the first ten shooters were unsuccessful. Attilio Biasca, who scored the winning goal against the Finns, and JCK Lions’ Lickett Reichel gave Switzerland an extra point. So the Swiss team’s prospects at the top of Group B in early qualification for the quarter-finals are still good. The duel with the United States on Thursday.
