What a crazy week for the Swiss team. Last-minute guests at the World Championship after the packages of the USA and the Czech Republic due to Covid-19, the Helvetians took off for Egypt two hours late this Thursday morning. They must play their first game in the evening against Austria …
The Swiss charter flight took off from Zurich not at 8 a.m. as planned, but with a two hour delay due to snowfall. The national team will land four hours before the kick-off of their game against Austria. A preparation far from optimal for a selection which is preparing to participate in its 1st World Cup for 26 years.
