Shaqiri was visibly uncomfortable with the question, starting to argue with the journalist, who kept insistently repeating the question about the alleged provocations against the Serbs.

🇧🇷My friend, I do my job. I score goals. I scored two goals (against Serbia)“, shot the Swiss, remembering that he also scored against the Balkans team in the 2018 World Cup.

“I score goals and end of story. I’m a striker, my friend, I scored twice (against Serbia) and you know“, added Shaqiri.

Fifa’s press officers, then, entered the middle and ended the interview, thus avoiding further developments.

It is worth remembering that Shaqiri, as well as other athletes on the Swiss national team, come from Albania and Kosovo, countries with which Serbia has terrible relations – Kosovo’s independence is not even recognized by the Serbs.

In 2018, the attacking midfielder celebrated his goal against Serbia by making the eagle symbol on the Albanian flag, which started a huge fight and even made FIFA open a disciplinary process, which ended up not resulting in the player being punished.

Already in this Cup, he was accused by the Serbs of having made new provocations when he scored in the duel for the group stage, which, once again, resulted in a break between the athletes.
