Les Elephants and Cowbells

  • Written on:

PUMAFootball had an equally fun as intense day of travel as we have arrived to Gstaad in Switzerland. First we bumped into Didier Drogba for coffee and tea at the airport and chatted about the FA Cup and their new coach, Sven Goran Eriksson.

The drive to the hotel was just ridiculous. Valley after valley of green, picturesque landscape through the mountains and cute villages, all accompanied by the sound of…wait, is it really… Oh yes. Cowbells. We’re not in Kansas – we’re in Gstaad.

The mood at the camp is quite focused and serious. It’s still some players to be cut before the final 23 is picked and as Drogba, Zokora, Gervinhio, Kalou and Bacary Kone joined them today after an extended period time off since the league and cup finished up, the competition just got a little bit sharper.
