Russia: Swiss national team trains ahead of Costa Rica match

The Swiss national football team held a training session at the Torpedo Stadium in Moscow on Saturday, ahead of their game against Costa Rica at the 2018 World Cup. Switzerland’s World Cup win over Serbia in Kaliningrad has been overshadowed by celebrations made by two Swiss players, Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri, both of whom are of ethnic Albanian descent. They both made a winged gesture... Еще symbolising the eagle on the Albanian flag. Shaqiri also played in boots marked with the flags of Switzerland and Kosovo, the breakaway region that is not recognised as independent by dozens of countries, including Serbia and Russia. The players’ celebrations sparked debate on Twitter, with some questioning the need to mix politics with football and asking whether FIFA would take action.
