thumbnail Hello,

The 65-year-old is adamant that his team can spring a surprise against the South American favourites in their World Cup clash, noting that they have "nothing to lose"

Ottmar Hitzfeld says that Switzerland will not change their approach when they come up against Argentina in their World Cup second-round tie, believing that "anything is possible".

The South Americans are among the favourites to win the tournament and are expected to knock out the Swiss in Tuesday's last-16 clash in Sao Paulo.

Hitzfeld will end his illustrious coaching career when Switzerland's campaign comes to an end but the German is not ready to go home just yet as he attempts to mastermind a famous win at the Arena de Sao Paulo.

The 65-year-old has vowed to adopt the same tactics that have served him so well during his Switzerland tenure and is hopeful of springing a surprise.

"We will remain true to our philosophy," he told the Swiss Football Association's official website.

"That is, we want to build on our good organisation and compactness, accept duels and quickly switch from winning the ball in defence to attack.

"I am convinced that we have opportunities. We are the clear outsiders but we have nothing to lose and much to gain.

"We can make history on Tuesday. Each player has the chance of his personal history being accompanied by a large chapter. In one game, anything is possible."
