by Ashnaam Mohamed Rashid

Kenyan midfielder Magnus Breitenmoser came on as a second-half substitute to help FC Thun earn a
point in a dramatic comeback against FC Zurich in the Swiss Super League.
This was his second appearance for the club since signing back in March from FC Schaffhausen who ply
their trade in the Swiss second tier.
Magnus was given the nod in the 68th minute, coming on for Nicolas Hasler as coach Marc Schneider
aimed to salvage something from the tie that looked dead and buried.
Thun started the tie on the wrong footing as they went behind in the 15th minute when Benjamin Kololli
put FC Zurich ahead after being set up by Blaz Kramer.
Kololli turned provider in the 33rd minute with Kramer finally putting his name of the scoresheet to
double Zurich’s lead.
Thun’s game turned from bad to worse in the 56th minute when Toni Domgjoni seemingly putting the
game to bed with Kramer again registering an assist.
Congolese forward Ridge Munsy handed the visitors some hope in the 74th minute when he pulled one
back for Thun.
Breitenmoser got his name on the book for a cynical foul in the 79th minute as he tried too hard to
salvage something from the game.
Simone Rapp handed Thun some hope in the 84th minute when he headed in Matteo Tosetti’s pinpoint
Munsy completed his brace with a last gasp goal in the 90th minute as he kept a cool head to go past
the keeper to seal a dramatic comeback.
The draw preserves Thun’s seven-game unbeaten run but still sit second from bottom with 38 points
from 36 games.
