A number of the players were hurt from the heat, which peaked at 40°C that day. Austrian custodian Kurt Schmied went down with heat hyperpyrexia early on and staggered around. Between the poles for the rest of the match, as alternatives were not permitted back in those days.

What followed was a free-for-all between the two teams. Switzerland took a 3-0 lead only for Austria to turn things and go in at the break 5-4 ahead. Yes, there were nine goalmouths in the first half the first eight coming between the 16th and the 34th minute. In the space of a little over a neighborhood of an hour.

By the time

The final toot blew, Austria had made it finished to the last four with a 7-5 win. But that was as far as they would go. With ultimate winners West Germany getting the better of them in the semi-finals. The ‘Heat Battle of Lausanne’ as it is known set a record unrivaled to this day.

With the most goals ever (12) in a World Cup match. It was also the last time that Switzerland made it done to the quarter-finals. Since then, La Nati has reached the Smoothed of 16 on four occasions without ever going further. There was particular sorrow for the Swiss in Germany in 2006 when the team did not concede a single goal. But went out to Ukraine on disadvantages. That set another record that still stands, with Pascal Zuberbuhler’s hire in the fewest goals at a World Cup. In Qatar, Switzerland has been drawn into a group just as tough as they found themselves. Four years ago in Russia.

So, what makes us reason La Nati could finally get through to the last eight once again, 68 years after that 7-5 overthrow to Austria? We have come up with three reasons why they stand a decent chance of rolling in Qatar.

The human wall

To say that Yann Sommer is a reliable catcher is an understatement. He was already one of the stand-out companies in the Swiss squad at the World Cup in 2018, and in passing for Qatar 2022. The 33-year-old accepted just two goals in eight matches.
