  • Lewis has his hands all over Embolo and has a couple of attempts at pulling him back. He's shown the first yellow card of the game, and that means he'll miss the next match.

  • LEWIS IS OFF! Northern Ireland have had a couple of warnings about time-wasting already and Lewis is taking his time over a throw-in. The referee goes over to him and pulls out a yellow card, which is his second of the game, and he's sent straight down the tunnel. Northern Ireland are down to 10 men!

  • ZUBER SCORES! It's been coming, and Zuber puts Switzerland ahead! Dallas is caught on the ball by Embolo and he drives forward before being brought down by Ballard. He still manages to poke the ball through to Zuber and he makes no mistake by drilling it into the bottom corner. There's a quick VAR check, but it'll stand. 1-0 Switzerland!

  • Magennis picked up the ball off the floor while Zakaria was talking to the referee and threw it against the midfielder's chest, so he's booked for dissent.

  • FASSNACHT SCORES! Northern Ireland are all over the place at the back again, and they're punished for it! Embolo stays onside and squares it to Fassnacht, who is all alone through the middle. He has time to set himself on the edge of the box before coolly slotting his shot into the bottom corner. 2-0 Switzerland!
