Switzerland did not concede a goal for 559 minutes across parts of seven World Cup matches from 1994-2010. The streak began after allowing Spain's 86th minute goal in the Round of 16 matchup at the 1994 World Cup, continued through four clean sheets at the 2006 World Cup, and one clean sheet in the 2010 World Cup before allowing a 75th minute goal to Chile in the second group stage game on 21 June 2010. Switzerland did not qualify for either the 1998 nor 2002 World Cup finals.
