The SUI vs QAT match preview –
As the club season takes a break, international friendly games commence. One such will be between Switzerland as they take on Qatar on Wednesday.
Switzerland have always been the side that are going to be relevant in their pursuit of garnering an elite status when it comes to footballing ability. They do have some really good players, and in the recently concluded FIFA World Cup, they did really well, but it will still take them some years to achieve those goals. Coach Vladimir Petkovic has been at the helm of this project for the last four years and has a staggering 61% winning percentage. The tide is slowly but surely turning for Swiss.
On the other hand, the hosts of the next FIFA World Cup in 2022 will be Qatar and the eyes of the whole world will be on them for the next four years. A lot of talk has been done whether the rights won by them for 2022 were fair and square. This would be the first time they play in the biggest competition and need to have a decent side, one that can actually hold their own against the big boys. Or else, they will become the second team in the history of football to be ousted from the group-stage as hosts.
