Euro 2004 Football - Switzerland

Founded 1895   Fifa 1904Switzerland football Euro 2004

Prospects for the European Football Championship 2004

The fact that Switzerland topped their group is more an indictment of Russia and the Republic of Ireland, than a star performance from Switzerland.  As with virtually every international team, they have made defending a science.  What Switzerland are saying is we will pack the last third of the pitch and hope to steal a goal with a breakaway.

Historically, what happens is that Switzerland reach the finals but go out in the first round.  So, anything other than last place in this group has to be a bonus.

Fifa and UEFA are both based in Switzerland.
