The dream of a big title is over for Gladbach’s storm jewels Winsley Boteli (16) and Shio Fukuda (19)!
Boteli failed with Switzerland at the U17 World Cup in Hungary in the quarterfinals against Germany. Despite the opening goal from VfL attacker Boteli, the Confederates lost 2:3 on penalties. After an emergency brake, DFB defender Maxim Dal was sent off with a red card after just 15 minutes.
Boteli used the foul penalty that was due to put Switzerland in the lead. Despite the long majority, the Swiss had to accept the equalizer from Paris Brunner (49th).
In the penalty shoot-out, three Swiss failed in Leon Grando, Rhodri Smith and Boteli.
The striker still needs to practice taking penalties – Boteli had already missed a penalty in the group game against England (0-0). Now also in the penalty shoot-out in the quarter-final against Germany…
But Boteli has played a very strong European Championship so far, contributing two goals and two assists in four games. And he can still improve his result: Switzerland still has to play a decider against England for fifth place – the winner can still take part in the next U17 World Cup alongside the four semi-finalists.
For Fukuda, the U20 World Cup in Argentina is already over after the group stage. After losing 2-1 to Israel, Japan finished third in the group – and failed to make it through to the knockout stage as one of the best third-place finishers.
As in the first two games against Senegal (1-0) and Colombia (1-2), Fukuda came on as a wild card and was substituted on in the 75th minute this time. At that point, Japan had a 1-0 lead thanks to Isa Sakamoto’s goal (45′). The Israelis turned the tables with two late goals from Roy Nawi (76′) and Ömer Senior (90’+2′).
And sealed the Japan-Aus…
