Urs Fischer: “The day I stop being nervous before a game is the day I will give up.”

Urs Fischer mulled over the first question he’d been asked, before speaking slowly. Very slowly. He placed his words deliberately, like a master builder laying a cornerstone. Because on top of them would come everything else, and if you get the first piece wrong then at some point the whole damn edifice will collapse.

But he’d just been asked how he was.
