Tomorrow the match between the national teams of Serbia and Switzerland will face off in Winterthur in Deutweg Stadium. Kickoff is at 14 o’clock, the entrance fee is 10 euros. This will be the third time meeting between the two teams. In 2007 Switzerland clearly won with 32:19 but 5 years later the Serbs were in the final of the European Championship and took that game 20:14 successfully and thus increased there reputation, while Switzerland lost a bit of respect . Amazingly football was organized in Serbia but around 2003 and in 2005 started being played on a larger scale, where in Switzerland American Football is actively played since the 80’s. So now for the Alps Warriors the chance of power again is in sight. The Swiss national team had multi-day training camp from which extended over two weekends in Winterthur. The Winterthur Head Coach Antonio Morisco took the coaching job in the defense of the national team, which made Warriors team manager Alice Malherbe responsible for the organization of the camp. Switzerland will rely rookie quarterback Dea Baumann. Baumann at 6’3 220 has the size to take off when needed and can also make all the necessary throws. Baumann surprised everyone this past season with his poise and ability to manage the game when he took over for injured Cedric Townsend of the Calanda Bronco. Baumann will have two outstanding targets to throw at. Brian Keene with his 6’4 frame and soft hands should be a can’t miss, and Wes Welker like Adrian Suenderhauf at 6 foot catches everything in his area. The Serbians office is led by 21 year old running back Mihajlo Josovic of the Vukovi Belgrade. In last years group B championships he rushed for 236 yards and 2 touchdowns in just three games and will be the focal point of the Serbs offense.
