Ten Albanians are subject to Switzerland
The Hoffenheim Fabian Schär (5) scored the decisive goal for the Swiss, among the Albanians saw captain Lorik Cana after 36 minutes, the yellow-red card.

First chance - first goal
With the whistle by referee Carlos Velasco Carballo , the game developed in the expected direction. The Swiss took control and constricted Albania in their own half. Coinciding with the first real chance as it was then already happened: Schär headed a Shaqiri corner effortlessly over the wandering in the penalty Etrit Berisha the orphaned gate.
Although the Swiss in defense showed the odd vote difficulty Albania went despite the residue initially not a big risk, but sought to preserve its own compactness. The team of Vladimir Petkovic came to meet the. She lay deal to outsiders and would by the Frankfurter Haris Seferovic can increase (15), but too much aimed at goalkeeper Berisha.
Second booking for Cana
It took until the 26th minute before Taulant Xhaka brought the first significant degree in the direction of the treasured by Yann Sommer gate, but the ball flew well above the crossbar. Slowly realized the Albanians in this period but that the Swiss enabled them with their increasing passivity rooms. 30 minutes in, Armando Sadiku appeared after a strong ball Elseid Hysaj suddenly squeeze summer, which could, however, so just decisively shorten the angle and parry the shot.
In the middle of the first phase of the slightly better Albanians into then proved just the captain of his team a disservice. The already warned Cana slipped away on the edge of his own keeper and played the ball before then Seferovic hand - Carballo, except for an overdue second booking (36) no alternative. The free kick nailed Blerim Dzemaili the post, another conclusion from it flew just right down past (40th), Seferovic failed from close range on Berisha (42) - it would have no less than 4 to change sides: can be 0 ,
Private duel Seferovic-Berisha
The second half began with a misfiring of the Swiss Johan Djourou who einschätzte a long ball wrong. Summer, however, was already hurrying to Djourous luck out of the box, the ball ereichte before the onrushing Sadiku and thus prevented the drumbeat. Then the Confederates took control again and again it would only be the fast reacting Berisha a Seferovic that match your query (52).
Between Berisha and Seferovic had then developed later than 66 minutes a genuine private duel, but also in great chance 25 minutes before the end of the Albanian goalkeeper Lazio prevailed. The one or other opportunity presented itself in the result nor the Petkovic team, but mostly bandaged his players simply too casual. Substitute Breel Embolo (74th) fired a shot on goal, Shaqiris shot had at Berisha terminus (80). Meanwhile Sadiku had on the other side even his third great chance (75th), this time the side netting prevented the equalizer.
Gashi again with the tremendous opportunity
When it came it hinted that the game would coast leisurely, Albania Joker Shkelzen Gashi had dates before the summer out of nowhere all the time, but failed at the stoic calm and Agend parierenden keeper (87). Thus the victory of the Confederates was deservedly in the end, given the great superiority, but ultimately somehow also a bit lucky. "We have a difficult game expected and had a lot of pressure. That was not easy. We have the game after leading from the hand added. we need to see that we correct some things " , the goalkeeper said then. And coach Gianni De Biasi came to a similar conclusion as his keeper.
"We have not mentally withstood this pressure, the team has not introduced in the first 20 minutes, as I had imagined. It has be overwhelmed by the emotions. The early goal made it even harder. Then came the Expulsion, was justified. But we also had incredible opportunities " , said De Biasi.
