It could have been a sobering evening. But it was a night with a beautiful story. Cedric Itten, substitute in the 71st minute. Minute, met just six minutes later when his national team debut in the stadium of his club.
"I cannot realise it at all. The line-up was incredibly unexpected." And it went on better for the 22-Year-old: "during my goal I was over the moon to be a national player, my childhood dream was." And then the 77 came. Minute and the cross from Zakaria. "I've tried to depose me. The Ball came in, and when he was inside, I was happy. It is a Highlight that will never go away more."
thanks also went to his club coach Peter Zeidler. "He has always supported me, even during my injury. It's beautiful."
the Swiss had a long time to bite on the play of the Georgians. "It was a complicated game," said His passer Denis Zakaria. "We knew on paper we are better." Nevertheless, they had at times trouble. Did you know that it would be difficult against this opponent. That's why he was so happy that it made a good end. "Now we have three points more and a game is on."
"such A victory does us good"
"The team was physically ready," said national coach Vladimir Petkovic. He had set the Team on an unpleasant game. Also, Granit Xhaka, confirmed: "We knew that they play good soccer , and that you trust. We have started well, but in the second half we were too open and not compact." This was also the reason why the Georgians were always more opportunities. "But such a victory is good for us, too."
Like the Rest of the team, Granit Xhaka was delighted with His goal. "It was almost obvious that it had to come to this. So the football, he writes stories. Cedric had not prepared a feast, came later to the Team. But he did it well."
