Switzerland upset photos
That is when Gelson Fernandes scored a goal. It was during the second half (in the 52nd minute) and with it Switzerland pulled off their very first win against Spain.
Fans may not realize that Spain has only ever lost two games out of the last fifty played and they even had a winning streak going of twelve straight wins in a row.
This major upset makes the FIFA 2010 World Cup all the more exciting and nerve racking for fans, both those who were there (there were 62,000 at the match) and those watching at home.
San Francisco residents watching noted that Spain dominated the offense with 25 shots on goal with the Swiss having had only 9. The Spaniards also controlled the ball almost 75 percent of the time.
The only cards to be issued during the game were against the Swiss (four yellow cards).
San Francisco resident and major FIFA 2010 World Cup fan, Francis Witham, watched the game on ESPN. “That was definitely a major upset. You were sitting on the edge of your seat from that moment on until the end of the game.
