World Cup Group E final table: France first, Switzerland second

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

Anything could’ve happened in Group E in the final games of the group stage. France needed a point to clinch their spot atop the table and their opponents Ecuador needed a win or a Switzerland loss. Ultimately, Ecuador was held to a scoreless draw and had to play a good portion of the game a man down thanks to a red card to Antonio Valencia.

Switzerland on the other hand got a hat trick from Xherdan Shaqiri which gave them a big win over Honduras, a team that has struggled in the tournament.

That pits France, the Group E winners against Group F runner-ups Nigeria. As the runner-ups of Group E, Switzerland plays Argentina and Lionel Messi.

Certainly a tough match up but at least their out of the group stage.
