After 4 Swiss Jerseys Tore And A Ball Burst Last Night, Footballer Shaquiri Blasts 'i Hope Puma Don't Produce Condoms'

Last night's 0-0 draw between Switzerland and France was marred by wardrobe malfunction fro 4 Swiss players who had their jerseys torn after contact with opponents.

Even the Adidas ball costing £105 used during the match burst open during the game leading fans to blast sportswear manufacturer Puma and Adidas, and Switzerland/ Stoke player Shaquiri didn't hold back in his own scathing assessment of the sportswear giant albeit jokingly.

 "I hope Puma does not produce condoms." he told

Granit Xhaka, the new Arsenal midfielder, had to change his jersey twice during the Group A game, while Admir Mehmedi and the striker Breel Embolo also required replacements following tugs that did not appear especially vicious.

    "We have had a few problems with the jersey," Embolo said. "The kit manager is not fully ready yet, but we are."

Yann Sommer the goalkeeper added:

    "It can happen. It means it was a fight on pitch."

A Puma spokesperson told the Guardian:

     "Five Puma teams have played 10 games in this tournament without such problems. Our product people are currently investigating the shirt material. We will provide a further update when we have one."
