“Somehow, it is not normal that we have succeeded such a performance”, blurted, hilarious, Yann Sommer. The goalkeeper noted at the RTS microphone that the performance was immense “after a chaotic week. It’s incredible that we managed to have such possession of the ball with such an unusual team. A Fabian Frei must not have come since. three years.”
The Mönchengladbach goalkeeper couldn’t avoid a question about his save from Jorghino’s penalty. “I sent him bad vibes,” laughed the Balois.
For his part, Fabian Frei, called the last hour, raised his degree of exhaustion after a full match. “I tried to give the maximum. I think I managed to show some qualities”, noted the midfielder of FC Basel. “My club-mates had four days off, but I wouldn’t have missed this game for anything. But I don’t know how I could play in three days ….”
Manuel Akanji, boss of the defense, underlined the good performance of the team. “We played a lot better than in our Euro game against Italy. In the end we were dead tired. We showed we can hold on. The midfielder did a great job.”
“We were able to find solutions against an opponent of a very high caliber”, savored Murat Yakin. “The statistics show that we weren’t that dominated. We won the respect of our opponent.”
