World Cup Results for June 16

17 Jun

The story of the day was Switzerland pulling off the biggest upset thus far in the 2010 World Cup, taking a 1-0 victory and the 3 points that come with it in their match against Spain. It’s simply unbelievable that the Swiss were able to pull the upset, and, personally, my social media network reflected it. Feeds full of just shock and a mix of joy and disappointment. I just watched the end of the game, and it could have been 2-0 if not for the post getting in the way. The Spaniards dominated in the stats, but the Swiss got the win. In the other two games, Chile got their country’s first World Cup victory and Uruguay put up a big win against the host team of South Africa.
