This was one of the most beautiful interpretations of the peace of the brave. On the eve of finding Portugal, Murat Yakin and Granit Shaka, in front of the press, achieved the Holy Union.
I have no problem with Murat Yakin. I did no attack against him, and Granit Xhaka fired. Our relationship is good. Each coach brings a new philosophy. He asks for new things. We have to accept it.
As for the coach, he gave an even stronger speech. “Granit is the leader in this field. And it will remain so, says Murat Yakin frankly. He showed it on Thursday against Spain. He put in a really great performance during this meeting. We, Granit and I, are two men of character. We talk a lot. We are both looking for Success. We also know that the Swiss national team is above everything. I do not tolerate anyone questioning our relationship. Unacceptable.’
But the coach and his captain know that immediate justice for peace will be the result of this Sunday’s game in Geneva against Portugal, a Portugal that would develop without Cristiano Ronaldo. Both men hope that Switzerland will show its face in the second half against Spain. We dominated La Roja after the first half. “Now you have to be able to play 90 minutes with the same intensity,” Murat Yakin said.
Omelin in goal
He hopes to do it with the best possible team. Thus, the return of Nico Elvedi will allow him to align his best hinges in defense. Standing on Thursday against Spain after missing out on the Czech Republic and Portugal, Manuel Akanji called up his former defense coach. It is his relationship with Niko Elvedi that provides the most guarantees.
The change has already been approved. Jan Sommer will leave his place to Jonas Umlin in the cage. After doing the job last March at Wembley against England, the Montpellier goalkeeper had the chance to assert himself as No. 2 on Sunday. The version that Gregor Koppel prepared last Sunday in Lisbon was, as we remember, modest.
