The Swiss cut open the German defense like one of their cheeses. To be fair they were missing the Bayern Munich contingent with Manuel Neuer, Philipp Lahm, Holger Badtstuber, Derek Boateng, Toni Kroos, and Bastian Schweinsteiger rested for this match.
Eren Derdiyok scored a hat trick, two of them through headers, as the Germans elected to remain earthbound. Stephan Lichtsteiner also punished them aerially while Admir Mehmedi finished off Marc-André ter Stegen’s spill for Switzerland’s final score.
Diego Benaglia and the Swiss defense also did not have a good day in the office. Check out Andre Schurrle’s shot which was headed straight for Benaglia but at the very end of its trajectory swerved to his left to leaving him stranded.
