Early sub for Switzerland after Von Bergen suffers a battering

Steve Von Bergen lasted less than ten minutes against France before suffering a rather nasty injury. The Switzerland defender collided with Olivier Giroud, with the latter's boot meeting his eye and scraping down the side of his face. It was accidental on Giroud's part, but left quite a mess for Von Bergen.

Trust me, if you weren't watching, it's not something you'd like to see. Suffice to say that Von Bergen was unable to see very well, prompting an early switch. Aston Villa's most recent signing, Philippe Senderos, came on to take his place. Switzerland will be hoping the 29-year-old can do his part to keep out the potent France attack
