MLS: Xherdan Shaqiri spared for the World Cup –

Xherdan Shaqiri did not play Chicago’s penultimate game of the season, his coach having decided to spare him for the World Cup. Already eliminated from the race for the play-offs, the Fire won 3-2 in Cincinnati without the Basel, author of 7 goals and 11 assists this season.

According to Chicago coach Ezra Hendrickson, Xherdan Shaqiri has been spared for the next World Cup. « The goal is for Xherdan to approach the World Cup in the best possible mood« , he explains. After his two matches with the Swiss team, the sequence was considered too risky for the Basel.

Eliminated from the play-off race for the fifth consecutive year, the Fire will host New York City next Sunday for its final meeting of the season.

After this match against New York, the players will not be left in the wild. Training is planned for the next three weeks. Xherdan Shaqiri could therefore stay in Chicago until the end of the month before returning to Switzerland.
