Switzerland 2, Ecuador 1: As close to a walk-off goal as you can get, the Swiss win deep into injury time, just moments after Arroyo passed on an open shot that would have flipped the result.  What may quickly be forgotten was a great non-call by the ref after a Swiss player got hacked moving the ball upfield; rather than taking a spectacular dive that might have drawn a red card, the player kept on his feet, dribbled forward, and set up the winning goal:
Again, continuing a trend that has lasted throughout the early stage of the World Cup, this was the fifth come-from-behind win, and all but one game has featured at least three goals scored.
