Preview: Chile v Switzerland, Today, 3pm

Chile against Switzerland is the unlikely top-of-the-table game in Group H today thanks to the Swiss beating hot favourites Spain 1-0 in their opening match.

Chile beat Honduras by the same scoreline to seal their first win at a World Cup in 48 years.



The defeats of Spain and Honduras, who meet later today in Johannesburg, will mean a win for either Switzerland or Chile would give them one foot in the next round.



Chile's players will try to break down a tight Swiss defence and a packed midfield and avoid falling into the same trap as Spain, who dominated their match but lost out to a Gelson Fernandes goal against the run of play.
