Before Serbia duel at the World Cup

Double eagle ban for the Swiss national team

At the 2018 World Cup, the double-headed eagle gestures by Shaqiri, Xhaka and Lichtsteiner caused heated discussions. At the beginning of December there will be another duel in Qatar. So that this does not degenerate as it did four years ago, Nati director Pierluigi Tami speaks plainly.


Pierluigi Tami is taking action: he is banning the double-headed eagle for the 2022 World Cup.

After the double-headed eagle gestures by Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri at the 2018 World Cup, the sensational win against Serbia became a minor matter. In Switzerland, at Fifa and especially in Serbia, the gestures caused a lot of discussion and indignation. The two teams will meet again on December 2 at Stadium 974 in Qatar. The double-headed eagle should no longer be an issue there.

Responsible: National Director Pierluigi Tami. Immediately after the group draw on April 1, 2022, Tami and the Swiss delegation met Serbian national coach Dragan Stojković. “He told us: ‘It is our common wish that this game is all about football’,” Tami told the “Aargauer Zeitung”.
