Seferovic: Switzerland are young and hungry
Real Sociedad striker, Haris Seferovic scored the game-winning goal in Switzerland’s 2-1 win over 2014 World Cup Group E rival, Ecuador this past Sunday and insists that the squad is “hungry” and are ready to take on neighbouring nation, France on Friday.
In an interview with FIFA.com, Seferovic feels that the squad could surprise a lot of people after the 22-year-old capped off his World Cup debut with a goal in only 15 minutes of action.
“We have experienced players like (Napoli pair Valon) Behrami, (Goekhan) Inler and (Juventus’ Stephan) Lichtsteiner. We’re young and we’re hungry.
“I had a lovely time, it gives you confidence and I was just happy to have scored,” he said. “The result allowed us to clear the first hurdle.”
Seferovic went on to add that the “young and hungry” Swiss side are brimming with confidence and are eager to take on his La Real teammate, Antonie Griezmann’s France side and feels that their desire to attack could mark their downfall and give Switzerland three more points.
“There will surely be more space (than against Ecuador) because the French like to play more. They are strong in attack, but it may be their weakness to want to attack too much.
“Griezmann is a very good player, he is a fox, cunning, insolent.
“He knows where to run to, he never stays in the one place, and is definitely a player we need to pay attention to. But we have Stephane (Lichtsteiner), who is experienced and who will know what to do with regards to taking care of him.”
