About M.E. myself and I

I have been an M.E. sufferer for a long time now, but sports replay gaming is an easy hobby for me to enjoy. Originally from Canvey Island, Essex, I was introduced to replay gaming a few years ago, leading to my first purchase: Cricket World. Most sports I share will be common, but there are some more obscure replays thrown in. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to say hello! - Chris

Final Score - WC2010 Group H, Chile vs Switzerland

Monday 21st June - Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Port Elizabeth - Att. 34,872
Referee: Khalil Al Ghamdi (Saudi Arabia)

Chile (433): Bravo, Contreras, Ponce (Fuentes 86'), Medel, Carmona (Estrada 63'), Isla, Valdivia, Suazo, Beausejour (Fierro 76'), Sanchez
Switzerland (442): Benaglio, Lichtsteiner, Senderos, Grichting, von Bergen, Higgel, Inler, Bernetta, Nkufo (Banjaka 45'), Derdiyok (Frei 59'), Fernandes

Both teams are forced to make a change with Arturo Vidal and Reto Zeigler serving their one-match suspensions. Contreas and Senderos move into their respective defences.

It was to be another miserable result for the Swiss but it could have gone so much better for them if Fernandes had put his 22nd minute header past Claudio Bravo on a corner kick. But luck was not on their side as five minutes later Jorge Valdivia's long range shot wildly changed direction and in thanks to the unnecessary intervention of Steve von Bergen.

From that point on it became the Humberto Suazo Show, scoring his first just two minutes after Chile had taken their fortuitous lead by slamming a loose ball through the hands of Benaglio after Switzerland failed to clear a corner. Minutes after he missed a great chance with the head Suazo made it 3-0 on another corner, Beausejour heading it down neatly at the near post for a relatively simple finish. And the hat trick was complete when he powered his final shot in underneath the crossbar in stoppage time after good work from Valdivia and Mauricio Isla in the build up.
