Match 2 Euro 2020 Highlights - Wales vs Switzerland
- UEFA Match Centre
Looking at the match, and reading the stats, this looks like a bonus point for Wales, and two dropped points for the Swiss.
Vladimir Petkovic's Swiss team had 65% possession, compared to Wales' 35%. The Swiss also had 18 attempts on goal, with 4 on target. The Welsh had 9 attempts, with just 2 on target.
Ultimately, the Swiss were punished for not putting the game to bed when they had the chances. They took the lead in the 49th minute with a goal from Breel Embolo. But they just couldn't get that second goal that would probably have sealed the win.
Against a Welsh side containing attacking talent like Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and Daniel James, that was always going to leave the Swiss vulnerable. Eventually, the Swiss were punished for their wasteful finishing after 74 minutes, when Cardiff striker Kieffer Moore nodded home the equaliser.
