A little less than two hours before starting this Saturday's game between Switzerland and Spain, a A statement from the Swiss Federation put the shadow of Covid-19 on the table, if that shadow is not permanent. A Swiss player, Silvan Widmer and the physical trainer Oliver Riedwyl tested positive, according to the Federation, and were isolated following the protocols of the local authorities.

In In the same text, the Federation reported that, given the situation, the rest of the national team and all the people who live with them were subjected, at 2:00 p.m., to rapid tests, the result of which was reassuring: all negative. That allowed the game to be played without major shocks. It happens that the reliability of these rapid tests does not reach that of a PCR, so in the next few days we will have to be attentive to the appearance or not of more cases.

The tests are even beginning to be a reason to be taken into account by the selectors. Last Wednesday, after the blow to the head suffered Gay Luis Enrique explained that he was considering calling another player in case the Valencia side could not recover, and affirmed: " But of course, he has to have a negative PCR in the last 24 hours. " So the solution was found in sub'21, where Marc Cucurella meets that requirement.
