Euro 2020: Switzerland call up new goalkeeper in Euro squad after injury to Jonas Omlin- Switzerland have called up goalkeeper Gregor Kobel to replace the injured Jonas Omlin in their European Championship squad, the Swiss football association said on Sunday.
The 27-year-old Omlin suffered a minor injury to his right ankle while warming up for the opening match of the tournament for the Swiss on Saturday, when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Wales in Baku. Omlin was among the substitutes for the game.
Kobel, who moved to Borussia Dortmund on a five-year contract a fortnight ago, was in the pre-tournament training camp but was cut from the final squad.
The 23-year-old is uncapped at senior level but played for Switzerland at all junior age groups.
The Swiss meet Italy in their second Group A game in Rome on Wednesday.
