Switzerland vs. Mexico

The big Group B Olympic match up takes place tomorrow, August 1, and will determine who advances to have a shot at an olympic medal, and who will be packing bags for home. Here's the current situation for both teams. Mexico has the big advantage, and just needs a draw to get the one point they need to advance to the next round of quarterfinals. They will most likely be playing quite conservatively, and their offense will be powered mostly by one man breakaways.

Switzerland needs a victory to advance, and a big one at that. Of course, it all depends on what the other coutnries do in their group, but if Switzerland can beat Mexico by 2 or 3 goals, then they should be the ones to advance. I've always been a big Switzerland fan, so you know who I will be cheering for, as I've traveled around Switzerland quite a few times. My favorite place to stay while I was visiting there was the Backpackers Villa Sonnenhof in Interlaken Switzerland. They were a great last minute hostel find for me, and as far as a hostel goes, you can't find much of a better deal that that one for as many tourists that come to Switzerland.
