SWITZERLAND boss Murat Yakin has delivered 20 pounds of chocolate to the Northern Ireland national team as a thank you for helping them reach the World Cup.

Ian Baraclough’s men held Italy to a heroic 0-0 draw in Belfast last week.

The result allowed Switzerland to complete their qualifying group after beating Bulgaria 4-0.

Afterwards, the grateful Alpine nation vowed to reward Northern Ireland with some of their world-famous confectionery.

And coach Yakin has now kept his promise – packing 9.3kg of chocolate bars in a box addressed to the Irish FA.

The Swiss FA posted a film on Twitter, with the caption: “We kept our word, Northern Ireland! Sweet thanks are on the way!”

In the video, Yakin sings the Northern Irish song Sweet Caroline as she hands out various bars in the SFA office.

He said: “93 minutes without conceding a goal against European champions Italy equals 9.3kg of Swiss chocolate sent to Northern Ireland.”

Yakin puts a handwritten note that reads: “Thank you sweet, Murat” into the box before sealing it, taking it outside and beaming: “Very good, very good.”

Italy, who beat England on penalties to win the Euro 2020 final this summer, must now win the play-offs to reach next winter’s World Cup finals in Qatar.
