Switzerland vs Costa Rica 2-2 Highlights 27 June 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

For 90 minutes, Switzerland and Costa Rica exchanged scoring opportunities, frisky attacks, and countless missed chances at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in an entertaining back-and-forth match that came down to an 88th minute go-ahead goal, an overturned penalty kick decision, and a stoppage time, game-tying penalty-kick goal that only counted because the ball deflected off the crossbar and Switzerland goalkeeper Yann Sommer's head before rolling into the net.

Due to what unfolded at Spartak Stadium between Serbia and Brazil, what happened between Switzerland and Costa Rica didn't ended up mattering much.

On Wednesday, Switzerland and Costa Rica battled to a thrilling 2-2 draw that involved two goals in the final minutes.

The result was enough for Switzerland to gain entrance into the knockout stages of the World Cup. Even if Switzerland had lost, though, it would've advanced past the group stage due to Brazil's 2-0 win over Serbia, which vaulted Brazil to the top of Group E and secured Switzerland's position in second above Serbia.
