Switzerland vs New Zealand match preview

Going into the final matchday, any of the four teams in Group A could yet be eliminated, while all of the quartet could also advance.

New Zealand came into this tournament, on home soil of course, having never won a World Cup game in 15 attempts.

Well, on the competition’s opening night, they changed that in some style, stunning Norway at Eden Park, with Hannah Wilkinson scoring the historic winner, much to the delight of the record-breaking crowd in Auckland.

Five days later though, Jitka Klimková's team firmly came crashing back down to earth, beaten 1-0 by group minnows Philippines in Wellington.

Jacqui Hand had an equaliser disallowed by VAR for the narrowest offside you’re ever likely to see, before Grace Jale was denied by an astonishing save deep into stoppage time.

Had the Football Ferns won that one, they’d ben through to the round of 16 for the first time ever, but now still have plenty of work to do.

Switzerland meantime sit top of Group A at the start of the night, but could end it anywhere between first and third.

Rossocrociati battled to a 2-0 victory over Philippines in their opener, courtesy of Ramona Bachmann’s penalty, before Seraina Piubel lashed home a second on the rebound.

Then, on Tuesday, Inka Grings’ side played out an uneventful goalless draw with Norway in Hamilton; neither team able to make the breakthrough in a forgettable affair.

Thus, la Nati require just a draw in Dunedin to be sure of a place in the last 16, while only a win would guarantee top spot, that’s if Philippines pull off a surprise win simultaneously.

New Zealand meantime must win to make sure of going through.

A draw will only be enough for the co-hosts if the other game is also a draw, or if Norway win by a one-goal margin, scoring the same number of goals of fewer as New Zealand do.

Clear? Nope... didn’t think so!

So, which team, it could potentially be both, will be celebrating come full time at Forsyth Barr Stadium?

Switzerland team news

Seraina Piubel has been a surprise starter at this tournament, chosen over Alisha Lehmann, but, having scored in their group opener, the 23 year old is likely to keep her place.

She’ll start up front alongside Switzerland’s two superstar attackers, Ana Maria Crnogorčević and Ramona Bachmann.

Luana Bühler is set to return at centre-back, displacing Nadine Riesen.

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

New Zealand teams news

Hannah Wilkinson’s winner against Norway saw her become the first Kiwi to score at a World Cup since she herself netted against against China PR in 2015.

Celtic’s Olivia Chance and Annalie Longo were both introduced at half time against Philippines, so will either start this time?

Predicted XI (4-4-2): Esson; Bott, Scott, Brown, Riley; Chance, Hassett, Percival, Steinmetz; Wilkinson, Hand.
