Seventh place for the nati of Swiss supporters

It is not only the elite national teams, but also the national fan teams that determine the European champion in Germany. The Swiss team failed to win the title. She placed seventh at the mini-tournament in Frankfurt am Main.

Eight teams competed on the near-perfect pitch of the German Football Association (DFB) campus to determine the European Supporters’ Champion. Switzerland, with its coach Jérôme Lambert, known as Supporters Liaison Officer (SLO), was drawn into a pre-tournament group including Germany, Scotland and Croatia. After losing these three matches without scoring a goal, the Swiss beat the England team 11-10 on penalties.

Lambert recruited via Facebook and Instagram the ten players from French-speaking and German-speaking Switzerland who will represent the country at the Supporters’ Euro. “Obviously I can’t give advice to Murat Yakin in that way,” laughed the SLO, referring to the unconventional way in which he put together the team. “Our goal was not to finish last. Mission accomplished,” summarized Lambert with a big smile. “It was a tournament with a great atmosphere and there are great memories left.” Among them, a visit to the DFB museum and photos with the 2014 World Cup.
