It features an outline map of Kosovo filled in with the national flag of Russia-backed neighbors Serbia. Over the highest were the words “No Surrender.” The flag was also held up by Serbian followers during Brazil v Serbia game on Thursday, November 24. In 2008 Kosovo declared freedom from Serbia, but the ally of Russia refuses to know it as an independent state. Kosovo’s game minister, Hajrulla Ceku, complained to Football about the picture.

He speaks: “Shameful images from Serbia locker room, showing bad, xenophobic and genocidal communications towards Kosova while exploiting Qatar FIFA World Cup platform. “We anticipation real activities from FIFA in view of that the Kosovo Football Federation (FFK) is a complete Football and Uefa member.” The Football Federation of Kosovo (FFK) gave in a formal complaint to Football on Friday. It announced: “Such acts of chauvinism have no place in a sports affair, and even fewer inside the services where the most important affair of world Football takes place.” It also called for “agree to calculate against activities that provoke hatred between the general public and are against human values.

” Its declaration continued: “It is improper for this act to pass in silence; therefore, we strongly request that FIFA strictly implement its guidelines and punish the football federation of Serbia for this destructive claim and against the values ​​that football sent.” Currently FIFA said it had charged Serbia citing a section of its disciplinary code covering misconduct as well as “offensive gestures, signs or language”.

The world governing body voice: “The Football serious committee has opened proceedings against the FIFA Association of Serbia due to a flag displayed in their dressing room at the time of Brazil v Serbia.” The proceedings were opened on the basis of article 11 of the Football Disciplinary Code and article 4 of the Regulations for the Football World Cup 2022.”

The FFK also said today: “The Football World Cup is an event of joy and unity and should direct messages of expectation and peace, not messages of hatred. We call FIFA to take activity against the such effort.” Serbia, who missing 2-0 to Brazil, is due to face Cameroon in their next game on Monday, November 28. Its football alliance has not been explained so far. The previous week we told of fears Vladimir Putin’s brutal war could become the backdrop for a wave of violence between Kosovo and Serbia.

Peace speaking failed to defuse a bitter row over car license plates, leaving the region “on the verge of struggle.” EU foreign strategy chief Josep Borrell alerted that the dissatisfaction to resolve the long-running problem may spark innovative “violence” 23 years next the brutal Kosovo war. Also, Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic informs of “hell on the ground” if Kosovo does not back down in the disagreement.

The row came to a head after Kosovo declared a time limit for cars in the popular-Serbian north of the state to re-register cars with Kosovan plates. And while seeming petty, the transfer has sparked fury in Belgrade. At minimum 8 fire bombings have already taken place against Kosovan Serbs who switched their Serbian plates for innovative ones supporting the law.

Kosovo has backing from Nato but that has not stopped the pressures on Serbia. Russian authorities continue to defend Serbians rebelling against Kosovo’s government and say Pristina powers that be are deliberately escalating strains.

Switzerland World Cup squad 2022: Final list of 26 players for the national team in Qatar

Switzerland has been procuring a reputation as a giant slayer in current times, so Brazil and co. beware: Murat Yakin’s team is back and in an axe-swinging mood.  The Swiss are often touted as underdogs going into main tournaments, owing to a perceived absence of star names but make no fault, this is a serious tournament squad that has expended years together.

They’ve progressed from the group phases at five of their previous six most important tournaments and rocked Euro 2020 by knocking out the world champions, France.  In qualifying for Qatar 2022, Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka and his international fellow player went winning to seal first place in UEFA Group C and beat Euro 2020 champions Italy, who then crashed out in the playoffs.

Switzerland’s best player, strengths & weaknesses

The Swiss brought a veteran squad into the previous Football World Cup and are creating the journey to Qatar without an insufficient number of familiar stalwarts like today’s retired Stephan Lichtsteiner and Valon Behrami.  However, innovative faces have stepped up to lead, and the Swiss will once again be a stubborn, well-drilled side. 


Granit Xhaka has always been a dependable force for Switzerland but his club form has been transformed this time, with the midfielder a powerful force in Arsenal’s Premier League-chasing team.  Both he and Chicago Fire’s Xherdan Shaqiri will edge ever closer to their nation’s all-time arrival record in Qatar, which stands at 118 caps while functioning as the lifeblood and spine of this squad. Monaco’s Breel Embolo will be the go-to man in attack and a strong start to the Ligue 1 time suggests he’ll be ready for Qatar.

Switzerland’s old national stereotype of being well-drilled and well-organized has traditionally translated onto the pitch.  Fabian Schar, Ricardo Rodriguez, and Mauel Akanji are a resolute combination at the back. (And judging by this fresh meeting, Akanji is as impressive off the pitch thanks to his unbelievable math skills as he is on it!)


There’s nothing mostly flashy in this squad, which undoubtedly makes them a well-balanced fighting force. But it can leave the Swiss lacking fancy when faced with a stubborn backline. Shaqiri would once have had the magic to unlock a match, but at 31 his ability is fading.  An absence of depth behind him in the innovative roles is their main question. It’s a similar story in attack, where Embolo and Haris Seferovic are crucial for providing the goals.

Can Switzerland replace players on the Football World Cup roster?

Once the final 26-man roster is official, contributing squads at the Football World Cup can only make variations previously the initial match of the tournament, and only in the case of amazing circumstances. According to the official tournament guidelines, “a player listed on the final list may only be exchanged in the event of grave wound or sickness up until 24 hours previous to the start of his squad’s initial match.”

The squad in question would want to submit a medical description to FIFA and if the world governing body determines “the wound or illness is sufficiently grave to prevent the player from taking portion in the Football World Cup” then the replacement will be acceptable.  The replacement player must come from the preliminary list of players submitted to FIFA in October.
