Swiss Fan Needed

We all know that the Swiss newspapers don't rate their chances at the World Cup, but what do the fans think?

We want one (or two) dedicated bloggers to lead us through the Finals tournament from the Swiss point of view.

If that sounds like you, email us a piece of your writing to worldcupfootballfans at


The Seattle Sounders FC signed Dutch FC Twente and Switzerland international forward Blaise Nkufo, the Major League Soccer team announced on its website on Thursday.

Nkufo, the all-time scoring leader for Twente with 111 career goals in seven seasons, will join the Sounders after competing with the Swiss national team at the World Cup this summer.


Leicester City left-back Bruno Berner has not given up hope of winning his place back in the Switzerland side ahead of the World Cup in South Africa.

But Berner, whose goal against Nottingham Forest on Saturday set the Foxes on the way to a 3-0 win, told BBC Radio Leicester time is running out.

The 32-year-old, who has won 16 caps, was left out of the national squad for next week's friendly against Uruguay.

He said: "I'm ready but there is not much time left so it'll be difficult."
