This is a must-win situation for them and they are playing a team that has yet to gain a victory in eight World Cup matches. Switzerland has already proven it can score goals, posting multiple scores on both Ecuador and France. Honduras has just three goals in eight games. Even if the Swiss are held to one goal, that should be enough to win.
