key principle

  • The Swiss women’s national team lost their first group game 0:3 against the United States at the World Cup in Calgary.
  • Swiss guardian Andrea Brandli shines with the 55 parade.
  • Nati will play their next match against the Russian Federation selection on Sunday night (CEST).

Switzerland had lost to the US 8-0 in the last World Cup two years ago. In this year’s title fights in Calgary, Canada, it was also a loss against the big favorites at the start of the preliminary round Group A, but with 0:3 it was acceptable.

brandy under constant fire

Brianna Decker (5th minute), Kendall Coyne Schofield (25th) and Grace Zumwinkle (39th) scored for the defending champions. The Americans’ other 55 attempts led to defending Swiss goalkeeper Andrea Brandly, who is committed to Ohio State University.

Swiss women are not strong enough to rely on the aggressor. Head coach Colin Muller’s team brought only 10 completions on Brandlis’ goal in front of Alex Cavallini.

In the second Group A game, Canada beat Finland 5:3 despite being down 2–0 after the first period. All five teams from the strong Preliminary Round Group A pre-qualified for the quarter-finals. There are also three teams from Group B.

Group A

1. USA 1 3:00 3
2. Canada 1 5:3 3
3. ROC 0:0
4. Finland 1 3:5
5. Switzerland 1 0:3
