The Swiss will play Sweden in the Last 16 Round tomorrow (4 pm), at St Petersburg Stadium.

At this stage of the competition, the Deportivista defender is the only Branquiazul survivor. Schär was in the line-up for all of Switzerland’s previous games in Russia, where he also played the full 90 minutes. However, he will miss tomorrow’s game for picking up his second yellow card in the tournament.

Yesterday, Denmark faced Croatia in the last 16 round, in the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium. The match and extra-time ended in a draw (1-1). The Croats were more effective in the penalty shoot-out (4-3).

Krohn-Dehli, who was on the bench the first three games, debuted with Denmark. He came on in the 98th minute (extra-time) for Thomas Delaney.

The Deportivista midfielder scored the third penalty, but saw his team sent home from the World Cup by Croatia.

The other 3 Branquiazul players, Celso Borges, Francis and Ismael Diaz have already been knocked out of the World Cup.
