David Jansson’s side wanted to play even stronger after the Norway draw – which is impressive. With more power in the game forward, you start out like a fire brigade, scoring three times in the first 30 seconds.
As a result, nearly-out of stock Swiss Life Arena fans were allowed to wave Swiss flags at goal celebrations until their wrist was injured. Tobias Heller, Manuel Maurer and Patrick Mendelin put the home team ahead.
But then, as against Norway, comes the recession. David Jansson’s team struggles with some referee decisions and loses focus. Leikkanen and Lastikka outnumbered the runners-up again.
“Look down the hall. Sometimes it’s hard to focus on yourself. Some of us have to learn to deal with it,” Mandeln told SRF after the first trimester.
The break appears to have been a success, as the Swiss got off again with a great start in the third set. Noel Seller does not give Torreseva a chance in a one-on-one confrontation. A special goal from Schiess keeps Finns in the game. Zag restores the old distance before the second half.
Unlike on Saturday, the Swiss wall largely withstood enemy attacks, and Pascal Meyer destroyed Finnish chances with some salvage. Maurer can extend the difference after the bounce. The Finns managed to beat Meyer twice, but the hosts also find an answer in von Schiess.
