If I were from Switzerland I wouldn't be proud of having Albanian nationalists like Xhaka and Shaqiri on my team. That goal celebration with the double headed eagle was unnecessary.

But well deserved win for Switzerland. Serbia didn't show enough considering that they needed the win more.

First of all we were desperate tonight, we show nothing and we well deserve this lost. So congratulation to Swiss fans and Swiss team on well deserved win.

 

Refree was awful, I really don't know what is the point of VAR system when refrees still made catastrofical mistakes? 

 

And about some Swiss players, I am proud we don't have such players in our team. Even we never qualify for any big competition

1) Our guys were slow and useless for most of the time

2) Refree made tons of mistakes, hopefully this will be his only match in this WCh

3) Those celebrations were tasteless and quite redundant

4) VAR system is, excuse my language, pure shit!

5) Swiss team deserved to win, they sucked less.

People need to lay off on VAR. It's the new punchbag for any team that loses a game. Fans blamed refs before now they blame refs AND VAR.

 

Our commentators said that Mitrovic's playing style was his undoing and I agree. He looked for so many cheap folus that when he actually got fouled, ref had none of it. That's a classic crying wolf scenario here.

Crying wolf scenario or not, Neymaring his way through the game or not, that moment where two Swiss players pulled him down as if their lives depended on it was a very clear penalty and that's exactly the kind of thing VAR should take care of. 

 

Yet another reason why, in my opinion, using the VAR should be partially in the hands of the teams. As in, give both teams 1-2 uses of the VAR per match/half, which they get to keep if they are right and they lose if they're wrong. Much like in hockey.

Well it's useless - especially compared to the hawk-eye and challenge systems in tennis and volleyball :shrug:

It's better to have such fans or what? Shaqiri and Xhaka celebrated the way they did, because they were booed by serbian fans for having an albanian background. I am not surprised you didn't mention that, it perfectly fits the way you have commented in the past about things like that. Many serbian users on here have given some very "weird" comments about things like that in the past, but only if it concerns Albania/Kosovo. If it concerns Russia or Serbia, then everything is fine. I don't know if the serbian people on here represent the view of the majority of serbian people, but that certainly would be very sad.
