Twitter brands Sweden vs Switzerland 'boring'

Twitter users branded the round of 16 encounter between Sweden and Switzerland 'boring'.

After a goalless first half where most of the football played was scrappy, Twitter users expressed their views on the game which they lacked interest on as the quality of football was not up to what was expected or required.

"It's a goal that sums up this game, Emil Forsberg hit a terrible effort that's going straight at Sommer, until Manuel Akanji thrusts out a leg and it flies into the top corner.

"Feel for Akanji, he's the one player that's actually not been painful to watch this game"

"Anybody who knows the difference between Sweden and Switzerland is a liar"

"Just suddenly reminded that, at Euro 2016, an ITV commentator observed about Switzerland that "When you’re brought up in a neutral country, maybe you do lack a bit of aggression…"

"When Drake said “this Sweden Switzerland game is shite I can’t wait for England Colombia” I felt that x"
