World Cup Group E table update: Switzerland stuns Ecuador to move atop table

It looked like Switzerland and Ecuador were going to tie, providing the first draw of the tournament. The Swiss team had a different plan and a counter attack late in stoppage time set up a game winning goal.

Switzerland weathered a challenge and went on the counter attack. Ricardo Rodriguez sent in a low cross from the left wing and Haris Seferovic redirected it near the left post to score the game-winner.

The whistle blew seconds later after the ensuing kick off and Switzerland moved to the top of the table. It was an absolutely stunning result that changed the dynamics of the group for the rest of the tournament.
