Vine: Haris Seferovic Scores A Beautiful 93rd Minute Winner To Put Switzerland Past Ecuador

Ecuador looked primed to pull an upset, or at least a well-earned draw, in today's first World Cup match, but a late goal by Switzerland's Haris Seferovic put the seeded European squad ahead 2-1 as time wound down. 

Ecuador took a 1-0 lead with a 22nd minute goal by Enner Valencia, and the underdogs road the lead into the half. Switzerland tied things up shortly after the second half got underway. With just moments left in the match, things looked to be heading to the first draw of this World CUp, but Seferovic's goal gave the Swiss a dramatic win.
