The Swiss team won 2-1 against the United States. Vladimir Petkovic’s men were scared in St. Gallen by being quickly led to the score. They provided the essential thanks to the successes of Ricardo Rodriguez and Steven Zuber.
For its first preparation match before the Euro that it will start on June 12 in Baku against Wales, Switzerland forced the decision thanks to the successes of Ricardo Rodriguez (10th) and Steven Zuber (63rd), two men suffering this season in their club. Despite the victory, Vladimir Petkovic must admit that his team were far from superior in the game in front of an opponent as young as they were talented.
There is still work to be done for the Nati, especially in defense where individual errors, in particular that of Nico Elvedi on the opening scoring of Sebastian Lletget in the 5th minute, weighed down the start of the Swiss match. In attack, Xherdan Shaqiri, who celebrated his 90th cap, and his teammates will have to be more skilful in front of goal
Widmer the big winner
The big winner of the evening is called Silvan Widmer. Decisive passer on the 1-1 and involved in the action of the penalty, the FC Basel side showed a real punch on the offensive plan.
Switzerland will deliver a final preparation match this Thursday against Liechtenstein, still in St. Gallen. It is to be hoped that this meeting against an opponent much more modest than the United States will allow Haris Seferovic and Breel Embolo to settle the sights.
