St Jakob Park tonight, Spain is looking for a definite victory over the Swiss side. It now equals Spanish captain Sergio Ramos with Italian goalkeeping legend Buffon’s record of 175 international caps, the game against Switzerland tonight establishes a record in the name of the Spaniard. The 34-year-old was part of the national team’s many international glories, including Euros and World Cup.
Switzerland is at bottom of the table with 2 points. They were in an impressive performance against Germany on both occasions during this campaign but lost their remaining games. Meanwhile, Spain top the Group A4 with seven points, but their 13-game unbeaten competitive run ended last time out with a shock defeat to Ukranian’s side.
