The quantity chosen by Yakin is not accidental, but it is a tribute to the 93 minutes of concentration thanks to which the Northern Irishmen held back the European champions of Italy without conceding them the goal. The Swiss Federation has thus kept the promise made on Twitter to Northern Ireland on the eve of the match with Italy. A nice video that helps to increase the desire of the blues to win a place at the World Cup. Even without chocolate, the flight to Qatar would have a sweet taste.
