The Swiss football team will meet for the first time this year on Monday. On its program, three matches: a trip to Bulgaria on Thursday March 25 and the reception of Lithuania three days later in the framework of the qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup, then a friendly game against Finland the following Wednesday.

This Friday, Vladimir Petkovic unveiled the list of 23 players summoned. We notice two absences for injury (Schär, Steffen), three returns (Zakaria, Mbabu, Omlin), no surprises. The coach was free to compose completely as he pleased. It doesn’t sound like much but in the context of the pandemic, it is a luxury that many of its counterparts around the world have been deprived of.
