    The Swiss defence is vulnerable enough to still give away a goal against 10 Albanians, but on the other hand the Swiss are likely to score another one sooner or later.

    Seferovic is so average. Bring Embolo on.

    Albania would need to do something for that to happen.

    Seferovic could've had a hat trick by now.

    Gashi wasted an unreal chance. Albania deserved the draw.

    Pretty courageous effort from Albania

    Switzerland.. yeah I don't see them getting very far with the likes of Djourou and Seferovic in their linup

    Albania played well enough to get something out of the game.

    Sommer was great.

    Great goaltending in this game. Feel a bit sad for Albania, they did well considering being down a man for most of the game

    I thought Albania played quite well, but Switzerland were the favorites and got the result, even if it wasn't a great game from them.

    Can never tell what a team really has in their opening game, but to play like that when up a man is quite concerning. Albania were able to attack way too easily and forced Switzerland into playing keep away at the end of the game, so they should feel good about themselves.

    Switzerland looked kinda crap in the lead up to the tournament as well. I think with Switzerland, people sometimes get carried away, they're a solid Tier 2 side in Europe but that's it and the gap between Tier 2 and Tier 3 isn't always that huge on a given day.
