Euro 2020

Kosovo shakes up Swiss football – Euro 2020

Twenty-three men are a football squad. If you add the two professional leagues Super- and Challenge-League together– besides Switzerland – only one nation would bring a complete team on the turf: France with 28 players (16 SL, 12 CL). And then comes Kosovo with 22 players (8 SL, 14 CL). Brazil comes in third place with “only” a total of 15 players.

There is no question that Kosovo is a football ingesis. “Even in the former Yugoslavia, this was very popular,” says FCL midfielder Idriz Voca (22). “And today, at the Nati games, everyone is completely euphoric. I’m looking forward to March.” Kosovo can then qualify for the 2020 European Football Championship via the playoffs.
