Spain is one of the top 5. I can't believe Switzerland beat Spain. European (not Switzerland) and South American countries are supposed to win the most games. In 2010, they were number 2, and now they're Number 1! They also had good chances to score.

If Switzerland would have concentrated just a little more on their offence, we would have made it past the group stage!
