No surprises - Petkovic leaves Kopil, Nadu and Zachary at home
Andy Zachary (left) and Dan Nadwi together stormed the Swiss U-21 Championship – in first selection, they still have to wait for their debut.


Vladimir Petkovic, coach of the national team, announced the final 26-man squad. After the reduction, Gregor Koppel, Dan Nadwi and Andy Zachary will not participate in the tournament.

Of the 29 players who have trained at Bad Ragaz since last Wednesday, Petkovic had to send three home – one goalkeeper and two on the field. Not surprisingly, Gregor Koppel (Borussia Dortmund), Dan Ndui (Nice) and Andy Zachary (Brighton and Hove Albion) were injured. The three players have not appeared in the test match against the United States and have never played for the Swiss national team yet. The greatest relief must be with Sylvain and Dammor. Before the 2016 European Championships and World Cup 2018, the Basel defender was removed from the squad at the last minute.

With this team, Switzerland goes to EM
