Drunk on Mitro: Group E gets tasty and Nigeria arrive

We look back over an entertaining game full of quality and political hand gestures as the Swiss overcome the tough test of Mitro’s Serbia, Neymar’s emotional levee breaks as he opens his account for the tournament, and Nigeria show that there’s more to them than kits as they break Icelandic hearts. 


Elsewhere there are predictable stepovers, borrowed celebrations and Marcus Berg: Landlord.
