  • The Swiss U20 national team also lost in the second group game of the World Cup in Gothenburg.
  • Coach Marcel Jenney's team stood no chance against the gold co-winners USA at 3:11.
  • At the end of the group stage, Norway (Saturday) and the Czech Republic (Sunday) await Switzerland.

At least Switzerland managed to balance the bottom third somewhat. After just 78 seconds of play, Gail Chryst made it 2:9 with a well-placed wrist shot. Thierry Schild also scored after 8 minutes with a converted deflection. The division ended 2-2.

However, there were no problems for the favorite Americans: thanks to 11:3, they won their second game in Group B and took the lead in the table.

A third hat-trick and a dream solo

The favorite started like a fire department: after just 80 seconds, Will Smith shocked Switzerland for the first time. As a result, the five-time U20 world champion stepped down. Only Jimmy Snookerudt scored a hat-trick in the first third. After all, Gregory Weber put Switzerland on the scoreboard after 10 minutes with a brilliant solo run.

due to failure (and an opening 3-0 defeat against Slovakia), the Swiss youngsters are now bottom of the group with 0 points, and games against newly promoted Norway and the Czech Republic are even better. However, 4 of the 5 teams qualified for the quarterfinals.
