Prospects for the European Football Championship 2004

The fact that Switzerland topped their group is more an indictment of Russia and the Republic of Ireland, than a star performance from Switzerland. As with virtually every international team, they have made defending a science. What Switzerland are saying is we will pack the last third of the pitch and hope to steal a goal with a breakaway. Historically, what happens is that Switzerland reach the finals but go out in the first round.  So, anything other than last place in this group has to be a bonus. Fifa and UEFA are both based in Switzerland. Qualified 1996
