Women’s World Cup Catch-up – Day Seven

Vanessa Arauz’s Ecuador joined the Ivory Coast in an early exit from the tournament after another humiliating defeat, this time by the hands of Switzerland at the BC Place stadium in Vancouver.

A strike from forward, Eseosa Aigbogun, and Ecuador defender Angie Ponce’s own goal gave the Swiss a 2-0 lead at the break.

Then came an onslaught in the second half, as Martina Voss-Teklenburg’s side scored further goals, including a 7 minute hat-trick from midfielder Fabienne Humm. Player of the Match, Ramona Bachmann also netted a hat-trick, and Martina Moser added another.

The unlucky Ecuadorian defender Ponce did score Ecuador’s first ever World Cup goal from the spot after forward Monica Quinteros was bundled over in the area by Swiss defender Rahel Kiwic, but her joy then soon turned to despair.

As again, Ponce put the ball into her own net to complete a miserable game for Ecuador and sees them out of the World Cup.
