Can The Swiss Win The World Cup?Rachel Garcia
Switzerland comes into the World Cup listed at 100/1 to win the tournament this year. They have a solid defense but they did not play in a strong European qualifying group which led to being drawn into one of the weaker World Cup groups.

How did Switzerland qualify?
Switzerland won Group E of the UEFA qualification group after recording 24 points in 10 games, topping teams including Iceland, Slovenia, Norway, Albania, and Cyprus. The Swiss finished without losing a single game and scoring 17 goals and allowing only six.
