National coach Murat Yakin (48) was shaking all weekend. But on Monday morning, the tension was gone when he and his wife, Anja, walked into the lobby of the Radisson airport hotel four hours before his flight to Qatar. Says Yakin: “We hoped that no player would fail. Now I’m glad we don’t have to nominate anyone. We are traveling to Qatar with great anticipation.

Yakin’s World Cup team will appear in full at Zürich-Kloten, taking off on jet flight LX 8842 a few minutes late at 15:06 for Doha.
