Switzerland national team made a positive start on their World Cup 2014 campaign as they defeated Ecuador on Group E opening match this weekend.
Being placed as favorite in the group, Swiss were eager to show their worth by putting on an impressive display, but it was far from an easy task for Ottmar Hitzfeld's men.
Ecuador put on a strong pressure early on and that positive effort was rewarded when they took the lead on 22 minutes through Enner Valencia.
Swiss improved their performance after the break and got back on level terms early after the re-start, thanks to Admir Mehmedi's close range header.
The match got tight again after that equalizer, but it was the European side that got all three points when a swift counter attack deep in stoppage time was finished off with a fine goal from Haris Seferovic.
