ZYou probably shouldn’t be playing against Yann Sommer, at least not if you’re directly against him as a goalkeeper. “Even his own players bite their teeth off him. They play for money in training, and he filled his treasury again this week, »revealed Swiss national football coach Murat Yakin after the 2-1 draw in the Nations League against the Czech Republic, where Sommer thwarted a penalty by Tomas Soucek – it was his fifth saved penalty in national dress in a row. Also thanks to the captain and the goals of Remo Freuler (29th) and ex-Gladbacher Breel Embolo (30th), the Swiss remain in the A-League.
Borussia Mönchengladbach goalkeeper Sommer, who has been in excellent form for weeks, is now hoping for a great World Cup. “We got a good feeling from the games against Spain and Portugal. That was important for the Nations League. And now we are preparing well in the clubs for the World Cup. It will be a completely different tournament and we have to be at a top level again, »said the 33-year-old. Switzerland meets Cameroon, Brazil and Serbia at the World Cup in Qatar. Before the start of the tournament, there will be a final friendly against Ghana on November 17 in Abu Dhabi.
