Switzerland best performance contniues under New Coach

Switzerland continued their impressive form under new manager Vladimir Petkovic after managing the second consecutive victory in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Switzerland had started the campaign with defeats against England in Slovenia. However, they appear to have recovered from these setbacks after managing to consecutive 4-0 wins over San Marino and Lithuania. Both these teams are considered as minnows and Switzerland were the overwhelming favourites to get three points. Many even expected the Swiss to score more than five past Lithuania. Midfielder Gelson Fernandes says that they were not able to score more since the opposition were extremely good and compact.

Slovenia “spirit” Edges Off Switzerland

Slovenia secured a great win against Switzerland and according to midfielder Kevin Kampl, it’s their great fighting spirit which played the best influence in snatching the victory from the Swiss grasp.

However, the Slovenia national football team coach has pointed to “high-level” goalkeeping prowess as a much bigger influence in Slovenia’s recent win, in comparison to Kampl’s fighting spirit.

Kampl was naturally delighted to secure the win against the Swiss team.

Del Bosque Praises Xavi

Spain boss Vicente del Bosque has launched the praise on midfielder Xavi, who announced his retirement from international football after more than a decade of trophies. The Barcelona midfielder has been an integral part of the Spanish success in the last six years. The national team has won the likes of the European Championship and the World Cup during this period after having previously gone 44 years without a major trophy. Much of the success has been down to the possession-based football that Spain been able to play due to the presence of players like Xavi.
