Group F, Gothenburg

The match between Switzerland and Slovenia should decide the qualification, Slovenia must earn point(s) to go through, but Vranjes prepared a good tactic as Slovenia had the control of the game and the opponent during the first half and kept their advantage in the second part of the game too. Blaz Janc, Miha Zarabec, Nik Henigman or Mario Sostaric were very efficient and hard to stop, meanwhile, Switzerland could only rely on Andy Schmid.
