Philippines vs Switzerland match preview

Will Switzerland make a winning start to their World Cup campaign in Dunedin?

This is just Rossocrociati’s second appearance at this tournament, debuting eight years ago when they actually reached the round of 16, smashing Ecuador 10-1 before being ousted by hosts Canada.

Since then, the Swiss have qualified for each of the last two European Championships, but have got no further than the group stages both times.

12 months ago, la Nati ended up with just a solitary point to their name, drawing with Portugal before defeats at the hands of both Sweden and Netherlands.

Since then though, Inka Grings’ team did secure their World Cup return, beating Wales in last October’s play-off final, courtesy of Fabienne Humm’s dramatic 121st minute winner at Letzigrund.

Now, at this tournament, with games against Norway and co-hosts New Zealand to come, Switzerland will feel this opener is must win, if they’re to reach the knockout stages.

Philippines meantime will feature at a World Cup for the very first time, getting here courtesy of wins over Thailand, Indonesia and Chinese Taipei, the latter on penalties, at last year’s AFC Asia Cup.

So, just how competitive will the Filipinas be?

Well, since qualifying, Alen Stajcic’s team haven’t won any of their nine friendlies against non-Asian opposition, most-recently smashed 5-1 by Sweden behind-closed-doors on Monday.

So, without wanting to write off a team before a ball is kicked, Philippines are likely to finish bottom of Group A, and any points they do accumulate will be seen as a major achievement.

Are Switzerland set to enjoy an emphatic margin of victory at Forsyth Barr Stadium?

Philippines team news

18 of this squad were born in the United States, eight of which are from California, while midfielder Anicka Castañeda is the only player of the 23 who was actually born in the Philippines.

The PFF have done a fantastic job recruiting dual-nationals that have raised this team’s level and got them to this point.

Star striker Sarina Bolden is one of seven players who ply their trade in Australia, seeking to add to her 22 international goals.

Predicted XI (4-4-1-1): Davies-McDaniel; Cesar, Long, Randle, Harrison; Annis, Bugay, Castañeda, Guillou; Quezada-Keča; Bolden.

Switzerland teams news

Inka Grings’ side will line-up in a 4-4-2 diamond, with this chosen to ensure all of Switzerland’s best players are on the field.

Arsenal’s Lia Wälti has been carrying an injury in recent months but, if fit, will start at the base of midfield, and she is key to this team.

Their primary goal threat is Ana-Maria Crnogorčević, who’s scored 70 times for her country, including netting at the 2015 World Cup against Cameroon.

She’ll support the front two consisting off the equally dangerous Ramona Bachmann as well as Alisha Lehmann.

Predicted XI (4-4-2): Thalmann; Aigbogun, Bühler, Stierli, Maritz; Wälti, Sow, Reuteler, Crnogorčević; Lehmann, Bachmann.
