It's all over. The Swiss progress to the last 16 after a convincing performance and a great game for Shaqiri.
88' Figueroa takes a shot from way outside the box, it takes a deflection and looks dangerous for a moment before Bengalio is able to get his body firmly behind the ball as the game is all but over.
85' Palacios runs into the box and fires a low shot wide. The Swiss decide to bring off man of the moment Shaqiri for Dzemaili.
84' Swiss search for a fourth goal but a promising move with four players inside the box ends in an offside call.
82' Ingler takes a shot from distance that Valladres easily saves following a Swiss buildup.
79' CHANCE Bengston is wide open and recieves a good cross. He fires it straight into Bengalio who does well to stand up to the shot.
74' Honduras have a corner, Garcia takes it, Figueroa meets it but can't get a header on target. Najar now comes on for Garcia for Honduras
70' GOAL! Shaqiri finishes off a hatric after putting away Drmic's fine cross. The Swiss will surely go through now.
66' Garcia crosses to Bengtson at the far post who heads the ball back across the goal before Schar clears it.
64' Honduras continue to search for their opening goal, but they have not looked dangerous in the last 10 minutes. Switzerland seem to have stepped down a gear.
60' NO PENALTY Long ball into the box finds Placios he goes down after Djouroa makes contact with him in the box. Honduras perhaps unlucky to have the penatly shot turned down
55' A dangerous Swiss counter attack is initially halted by Honduras bedore some clever passes around the box and good movement end with a Shaqiri shot. Honduras do well to block the shot though
54' Shaqiri plays in Dremic who can only manage a tame shot as both teams enjoy good spells with the ball at their feet.
49' CHANCE Garcia plays Bengtson who shoots from a tight angle forcing Valladres into a good save. Honduras start looking like a much more dangerous team than in the first half
48' Bengtson tries to get on the end of a good cross with a diving header, but can't get there as Honduras create a half chance that was probably their most dangerous move of the game.
46' Subsitution by Honduras at half time as Chavez comes on for Espinoza.
45' Shaqiri gets on the end of a nice throughball into the box, but Valladres rushes out quickly to cover his shot. Half time approaches with the Swiss in firm control of the game passing and moving well.
43' Drmic takes a shot from a tight angle inside the box and is unable to beat Valladres as the Swiss continue to look dangerous.
40' The Swiss goalie Bengalio recieves some attention. After jumping to intercept a cross his head fall during his landing on a teamates knee. Bengalio will carry on though
38' Costly limps off the field and is replaced by Palacios.
37' Figueroa bumps Shaqiri and the Swiss get a free kick which is played into the box, but Honduras deal with the ball easily.
35' After a stale buildup, Bengton takes a shot for Honduras from outside the box., which flies well over Bengalio's head.
30' GOAL Shaqiri scores again. This time he finishes off a counter attack and slots it past the keeper. Drmic provided a well placed pass to set up the final ball for Shaqiri. Surely the Swiss can almost smell the last 16
28' Xhaka flies in with a free kick, which gets a bit of the man and the ball. Honduras get a free kick in the centre of the park. Both teams are playing a physical game and are not scared to go in for the tackel.
25' Ouch! Claros is down recieving a bit of attention. He was waiting to recieve an areal ball when his teamate rushed in with a high leg catching him in the chest. Claros manages to recover.

21' Honduras earn themselves a corner, Boniek crosses in the ball falls inside the box, Beckeles volleys while spinning, but his chance is well wide.
