time is running out for the Swiss midway through the second half of it, and somehow, nobody seems to be able to this evening in St. Gallen against Georgia to score a goal. Most likely Granit Xhaka, with maybe a wide shot. Or substitute St. Gallen striker Cedric Itten, that would be at least a nice story.
It is in the 77. Minute, Xhaka, the orchestrated at last a decent attack, and it is Itten, the one with the head, the revenue succeeds in the end 1:0.
The only goal of the Night: Cedric Itten hits 1:0. Video: SRF
In terms of headcount arg weakened Swiss team, Granit Xhaka does not extend on Friday night only due to its class and its Vita. But also because of its garish bright orange shoes. He exudes during the national anthem of self-confidence, legs apart, and grimly he stands, and as the game runs, he is, as always, the boss in the building.
Xhaka conducted and organized with the number 10, he distributes the balls in a precise, sometimes short and sometimes long, operates mostly near the center circle, sometimes like a battlefield, but soon also impatient, because not all of the players respond to his ideas, and the Swiss leave an inadequate impression.
On the 27. October denied Xhaka his final game for Arsenal, it was the day of his inglorious departure in the case of substitution against Crystal Palace, when he got upset about the catcalls of the audience and with the audience docked. Since then, he lost Captainamt and regular place at Arsenal, a future Xhakas in London is hard to imagine.
Because his wage of around ten million Swiss francs annually to Fund but only for the least of all clubs, should Arsenal come around to take over a large part of the Salary, should join Xhaka in the winter break on loan to another Club. For example, in Italy.
interested parties can see for themselves on Friday night in St. Gallen, the squabbles at Arsenal have no influence on the Xhakas qualities. After 25 minutes, he has not delivered against Georgia four shots into the goal but he hits. And as to him just before the break, a misplaced pass is running (or, rather, a player goes the wrong way), are to be heard quietly whistling to. You are expected to apply to the sedate appearance of the Swiss and not Xhaka. Especially since this is also achieved in the second half, as almost the only close to normal shape. And finally, on the winning goal, the decisive factor is involved.
"I have a hard time behind me," says the Basle after the game. "And I was very, very glad that I was allowed to be the week". The time with his team-mates have done him good. "It was good to come away just once, to relieve the head, and to have Fun at soccer ." And: "I am glad that I was back on the court."
