U20 national team travels to Canada to prepare for World Cup

Head coach Marco Baer has reduced the original 37-player squad to 26 for the U20 World Cup in Edmonton for the second preliminary stage.

in short needed

  • Head coach Marco Baer is on a tour of Canada with 26 players on Monday.
  • The U20 World Championships will take place in Edmonton from August 9 to 20.

The Swiss delegation travels to Edmonton on 1 August, where there are only two final friendlies, against Slovakia (5 August) and USA (6 August), before the World Cup first match against Sweden on 10 August. Other anti-groups are the United States (August 11), Germany (August 13) and Austria (August 15).

The unusual date is due to the cancellation of the previous U20 World Cup due to the coronavirus pandemic. Subsequently, the Swiss lost their only game 2:4 against Russia. All talent eligible to play at that time is allowed to participate, as the tournament provides a perfect performance. The “scheduled” U20 World Cup will then take place in late 2022/2023.
