Granita Xhaka Refused To let His National Team Go The Way Germany Did in Their World Cup Opener.

The star of the Swiss team and the captain of the team, Granita Xhaka, refused to allow his national team to go the way that the German team went in their opening match of the World Cup.

The German team all kept their mouths shut before the match, and later told Germany that it was a protest against FIFA and Qatar's refusal to wear the one love flag.

Star Granit Xhaka was asked if Switzerland will do the same in their 2nd match at the World Cup.

Xhaka replied "I don't think I will do anything like that".

"The Swiss team will focus on football and we will respect the laws of our host country."

"We didn't come here to tell anyone, we came here to play football."


Recently, Neymar was injured and it was the first match of the World Cup in Qatar.

After his injury, the Brazilian star was photographed with swelling in his ankle, which caused him to miss the next two games.

After that incident, he posted on his Instagram a story about If God had to choose a country, he would have chosen Brazil.

His writing was accompanied by fans who criticized the star while some of them treated him badly.

Brazilian star Raphinha spoke strongly about the incident and showed how Brazilians are very bad people.

"Argentinas adore Messi a lot. Portuguese people admire Ronaldo a lot. But Brazil doesn't."

Neymar's biggest mistake is that he was born in Brazil, this country does not deserve his talent."
