World Cup Quiz Switzerland

intro1

In 2006, Switzerland set a FIFA World Cup record by being eliminated from the competition despite not conceding a goal, losing to Ukraine in a penalty shootout in the last 16, by failing to score a single penalty – becoming the first national team in Cup history to do this. They would not concede a goal until their second group stage game in the 2010 FIFA World Cup, giving up a goal in the 74th minute against Chile, setting a World Cup Finals record for consecutive minutes without conceding a goal. How will they fare in Brazil?

Look past the silk-smooth chocolate and yodelling – contemporary Switzerland, is all about epic journeys and sublime experiences. The major cities are cosmopolitan and vibrant, transport links are excellent and the scenery takes your breath away. Switzerland is diverse and multilingual – almost everyone speaks some English along with at least one of the four official languages. The picturesque mountains attract as many tourists in summer as in winter, with the sunny promise of hiking in glorious wildflower meadows criss-crossed by streams, and in winter months the sharp cool air and adrenaline rush of skiing on some of the best pistes in the world.
