Fabian Schaar (Switzerland): “The English can always hurt their opponents” at Euro 2024

Fabian Schaar has been playing for Newcastle for six years, so this Saturday’s quarter-final against the Three Lions will be extra special for him. “I can’t wait to play against England. He says. For us, it’s great to show them what we can do. » However, the 32-year-old defender doesn’t think playing in the Premier League gives him any advantage over his opponent.

“We shouldn’t underestimate England, they saw how we played and they know our strengths…”

“We know each other, I know they are very high level players and we know what to expect, He started to answer. But the club game cannot be compared to the national team game. Yes, I will play against some colleagues, but I think the competition on Saturday will be completely different, unlike us, they have no advantage. »

The former Basel or Deportivo La Coruna player believes he has distanced himself from his English friends ahead of this crucial match. “I haven’t been in touch with my English friends much lately. The situation they choose, I can’t tell what they think. He agrees. But they are in the quarterfinals and we are not interested in what they did earlier in the tournament or the qualifiers. We shouldn’t underestimate England, they saw how we played, they know our strengths, they can always hurt the opposition. »

Also asked about the fact that Eddie Howe, his coach at the Magpies, could succeed Gareth Southgate as head of England selection, Schär was categorical this time: “I hope he stays with us at Newcastle. Looking at his work over the last few years, it’s a high-level job. He knows how to manage a big club, a big team. I’m delighted to have him and I hope he stays at Newcastle, that’s all I can say about that. This is the only thing.
