FIFA World Cup 2014: Honduras vs Switzerland 41th Match in Pictures

Xherdan Shaqiri scored a hat trick for Switzerland, propelling the Swiss to a 3-0 win over Honduras and a ticket to the knockout round. They needed some goals to give them some cushion in the goal differential column in case Ecuador beat France, and Shaqiri duly provided them. With Ecuador drawing 0-0, one goal would have sufficed.
