[SWITZERLAND-CZECH REP. REPORT CARD] Alexander Frei, Switzerland's captain and leading scorer, forced two saves from Czech keeper Petr Cech before suffering a first-half knee injury that takes him out of the tournament. Substitute Vaclav Sverkos latched on to a pass over the Swiss defense to volley low into the goal for the 1-0 gamewinner in the 70th minute. Soccer America's Mike Woitalla grades the players.
