That though is all we have time for tonight. I have been Brandon Sayer taking you through the game, I hope you have enjoyed it, but until next time, have a good night.

Serbia will wonder how they didn't at least get a point from that game as they started so well as Mitrovic gave them such a good start with an early goal but it wasn't to be and now it all comes down to their final game in the group againzt Brazil.

Well what a turnaround that was for Switzerland in the second half as a goal from Xhaka and a goal in the last minute from Shaqiri saw them get a very important three points.

90+6' - The referee has blown his whistle for full time. Serbia 1-2 Switzerland.

58' Off the post! Shaqiri almost pulled off the spectacular with a curling effort from the edge of the box which hit the post and went wide with Stojkovic beaten in nets. Switzerland have came out firing in this second half and look like a different team.

Switzerland have made a substitution at half time as Gavranovic has replaced Seferovic.

Once again Serbia have shown that they are to be taken seriously at this World Cup. Mitrovic headed home the opening goal of the game in the fifth minute. They also had further chances to increase their lead but also Switzerland have had chances to score themselves but failed to do so. What will happen in the second half? Stay tuned as we bring it live for you in a few minutes time!

30' - Switzerland show more attacking threat as a good pass from Zuber found Dzemali through on goal but he saw his goalbound shot well-saved by Stojkovic, who done well to get down to his right hand side to keep the ball out of the net.

28' - After a frantic start to the game, the game is at a pause at the minute as Milivojevic receives treatment for a injury to his leg which he looks like he will recover from.

19' - Mitrovic has started this game for Serbia like a man on a mission as his effort of an overhead kick just went over the crossbar after a good cross from Ivanovic.

10' - The Swiss have responded well to going behind and should really have been on level terms after good work from Rodriguez resulted in the full back finding Dzemaili unmarked in the box but the midfielder dragged his shot wide of the goal when he should have hit the target.

5' - Goal for Serbia! Mitrovic opens the scoring for Serbia. Straight away after seeing Sommer save a header from him, the big striker made no mistake second time around as he powered a header into the top corner of the net after another cross from Tadic. Fantastic start to this game.

5' - The first chance of game fell the way of Serbia as Mitrovic saw a powerful header well-saved by Yann Sommer after a great cross from Dusan Tadic.

1' - Referee Felix Brych has blown his whistle to begin the game. Game on!

So Serbia are the only ones to make a chance to their starting lineup with Kostic coming into the side to replace Ljajic from their first game, while the Swiss have kept the same lineup from their opening game with Behrami recovering from injury to take his place in the midfield.

Switzerland starting XI: Sommer; Lichtsteiner, Schär, Akanji, Rodríguez; Behrami, Xhaka; Shaqiri, Dzemaili, Zuber; Seferovic.

Serbia starting XI: Stojkovic; Ivanovic, Milenkovic, Tosic, Kolarov; Matic, Milivojevic; Tadic, Milinkovic-Savic, Kostic; Mitrovic.

The team news from Kaliningrad Stadium is in! Stay tuned as we bring you the news next.

Predicted Switzerland starting XI: (5-4-1) Sommer; Lichtsteiner, Akanji, Schaer, Zuber, Rodriguez; Xhaka, Behrami, Dzemaili, Shaqiri; Seferovic

Predicted Serbia starting XI: (4-2-3-1) Stojkovic; Ivanovic, Tosic, Milenkovic, Kolarov; Matic, Milivojevic; Tadic, Milinkovic-Savic, Ljajic; Mitrovic.

In terms of team news for both sides, both managers are unlikely to change much to their starting elevens for the game given how well both sets of players played in their opening games. It will therefore come down to how well either sides tactics work in the game and whoever shows more belief, will go onto win this very important game.

Switzerland's player to look out for during the game is Xherdan Shaqiri. The winger has all of the qualities to be a world beater on his day given how much talent he has but he fails to show it as often as he would like too. Shaqiri played well in the opening game and due to the fact that he will leave Stoke City this summer, he will want to impress any potential suitors how good he can be on the big stage.

For Serbia, even though they have many quality players, Sergej Milinković-Savić is one to keep an eye on given how many teams in the world that are on the lookout for the midfielder this summer. Even though he only has the five caps for his country to date, he showed his quality in the opening group game and he really should have had a couple of assists but for some poor finishing from his teammates.

Both sides have players to look out for in the game that could potentially help their side move a huge step closer to qualification for the knockout stage.

The Swiss, even though they didn't win, showed their defensive prowess in the game to hold onto a very good point that they earned and showed that they are up for the fight of making it out of a very tough group.

On the other hand, Switzerland come into this game after holding the favourites to win the World Cup, Brazil to a credible 1-1 draw with Steven Zuber heading home the equaliser after Philippe Coutinho gave the Brazilians an early lead.

The only real problem that the Serbians faced in their opening win was the fact that they missed so many chances with the likes of Aleksandar Mitrović squandering big opportunities, when on another day they could have been punished.

Serbia, though, are in the best place given their 1-0 victory against Costa Rica last Sunday with Aleksandar Kolarov scoring a great free-kick to seal a very important free-kick.

This is a huge match in terms of qualifying for the last 16 of the World Cup as Group E qualification is hanging right in the balance after the first round of games last weekend.
