Olympic adventure ended as Francois Affolter and Switzerland were eliminated
The 2012 Olympics are over for Francois Affolter and the Switzerland national team after the 21-year-old and his teammates lost their third group match against Mexico Wednesday night 1-0, getting eliminated from the tournament as the last placed team in the group. There was positive news as the Werder defender played the entire game and thereby made his Olympics debut.

After a 1-1 opening draw with Gabon and a 2-1 loss against South Korea, Switzerland needed a victory over Mexico by two goals to advance to the quarter-finals. But London 2012 is over for head coach Pierluigi Tami's men. Oribe Peralta scored the only goal of the game for Mexico in the 69th minute.
