Switzerland midfielder Xhaka limps away hurt from training
Xhaka’s injury scare Thursday comes 18 days before Switzerland’s opening World Cup game against Brazil.
He was helped away limping after being hurt in a challenge with teammate Valon Behrami during practice on a rain-soaked pitch Thursday.
The federation says Xhaka was treated by team doctors at their hotel and did not need to go to a hospital.
Switzerland’s first World Cup warm-up game is against Spain on Sunday in Villarreal.
