The 9th match of the FIFA World Cup 2014 is going to be held between Switzerland and Ecuador. The Group E match should be exciting as it is a must-win game for both the sides. Switzerland’s top performance in a world cup came long back in 1954 when it reached the quarter-finals.

Ecuador has qualified 3 times in the world cup. They earlier qualified in 2002 and 2006. It managed to seal a 2-2 draw against England in the pre-world cup friendly.
