2022 World Qualification: Reasons to Believe – rts.ch

2022 World Qualification: Reasons to Believe - rts.ch

149 days after the worst 3-0 defeat of the Petkovic era, Switzerland will face Italy again in Rome this Friday. Goal: Qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

Such a performance would basically match the rank held by Swiss selection in the 21st century, as it continues in four consecutive qualifying matches for a World Cup final.

In Rome, a defeat would send Switzerland back to the playoffs (after Northern Ireland for the 2018 World Cup). This time, to play in the World Cup in Qatar, we have to eliminate two opponents – one game each – next March.

The confidence of the coach

Despite the weight of absences (especially Sepherovic, Xaka, Embolo, LVD), Murat Yakin does not shake. The manager is confident that his team will be able to win in Rome against the reigning European champions. He is confident that he will be able to overtake the Italians in the memory of not qualifying for the 2018 World Cup. It needs to take as long as 0-0.

Don’t own anything …

Nothing will be taken on Friday evening regardless of the result. Despite the defeat, Switzerland will remain hopeful of winning Group C. It’s short, Italy’s defeat against Northern Ireland in Belfast on Monday and Switzerland ‘s best win that evening. .

A draw would not be a bad thing for Murat Yak and his players. After such an outcome they will be able to overtake Italy by a goal difference. Tough …

No, the most direct way to open the doors of the World Cup in Qatar is to win on Friday night. This is the message that Murat Yakin continues to ground to his players.
