FIFA WC 2014: France Beat Switzerland 5-2, Poised To Move To Last 16

France all but ensured a pre-quarterfinals berth by defeating Switzerland 5-2 in their Group E game at Arena Fonte Nova at Salvador on Saturday.
The win extends France’s no-loss record against the Swiss to seven games; the French had won three and drawn three before this game. Also, France became the 5th team after Brazil, Germany, Italy and Argentina to score 100 World Cup goals, and they celebrated the occasion by finding the net five times against a side that just failed to keep pace with them.
