Liechtenstein squad head south

Monthly review: National team coach Martin Andermatt has taken his players to a camp in Spain.
By Ernst Hasler

Martin Andermatt has taken advantage of the winter break to escape the cold at home and take his FC Vaduz squad to a training camp in Spain. Included in the party are six Liechtenstein internationals from other clubs.

'Train on good pitches'
Andermatt, who is combining club and international coaching duties on the trip, is hoping to build on the recent success of the national team, who held UEFA EURO 2004™ finalists Portugal to a draw and beat Luxembourg 4-0 in the autumn. "I think we've chosen the right time to go to Andalusia and train on good pitches and not on snow," he said.

Friendly matches
Vaduz, who play in the Swiss second division, will play friendly matches in Jerez against SV Austria Salzburg on 1 February and Austrian league leaders SK Rapid Wien on 4 February. "I want to work on the players' physical training to test what their limits are," added the coach.
