Switzerland have "nothing to lose"

The ESPN FC guys debate Switzerland's chances of advancing past the Round of 16.

Granit Xhaka believes Switzerland have "nothing to lose" in their 2014 World Cup round of 16 tie against Argentina.

Switzerland won six points during the group stage, but the two wins against Ecuador and Honduras were either side of a 5-2 defeat against France.

Their chances of progression have been written off by many but Xhaka insists they will give their all to cause an upset against one of the favourites to win the tournament.

"Argentina are indeed favourites," Xhaka told Bild. "But that also means that we've got nothing left to lose now. We wanted to show a reaction after the 5-2 defeat against France, and we've done just that by beating Honduras 3-0.

"And against Argentina with Messi everything is possible. We will do all we can to survive against Argentina. It's only one match and everything is possible!"

Meanwhile, Mehmet Scholl has backed his former Bayern Munich coach Ottmar Hitzfeld to lead Switzerland to an unlikely win against Argentina.

"Switzerland have a good chance against Argentina," Scholl, who now works as a pundit for TV network ARD, said. "This will be a game where I trust them to progress."

The former Bayern Munich star also praised in-form Xherdan Shaqiri, and advised him against leaving the Bundesliga champions after he was linked with a move away.

"He has the quality to become a permanent starter at the club for many years. I can only tell him to not leave the club," Scholl said.
