Swiss take 2-0 lead

Manaus/ Rio de Janeiro: Xherdan Shaqiri’s double gave Switzerland a 2-0 half-time lead over Honduras in a Group E match on Wednesday to give the Alpine nation a great chance of progressing to the knock-out stages.

Switzerland took the lead after six minutes with Shaqiri firing a superb shot from just outside the penalty box into the top corner.

In the other Group E match being played at the iconic Maracana in Rio, Ecuador and France were locked 0-0 after 45 minutes of action.
