Lucky11 | FIFA World Cup: Switzerland Full Squad Analysis
This will be Switzerland's 12th FIFA World Cup appearance. They first participated in the second edition in 1934, and they then hosted the competition two decades later. Switzerland is preparing to travel to Qatar for their fifth straight World Cup campaign after making it out of the group stages on three of their previous four occasions.
In their qualification group, they upset Italy, the defending champion of Europe, earning them a spot in the finals. Earlier this year, they also displayed their enormous potential by defeating Spain and Portugal in the UEFA Nations League. They were matched with pre-tournament favorites Brazil, as well as Cameroon and Serbia, thus they face a challenging assignment at the World Cup.
Yann Sommer of Borussia Monchengladbach is without a doubt Switzerland's top player, with Yvon Mvogo, Jonas Omlin, and Gregor Kobel expected to compete for the role as backup.
As the favored options at the back, Nico Elvedi, Silvan Widmer, Fabian Schar, and Ricardo Rodriguez will be confident of reaching the final roster.
Meanwhile, Kevin Mbabu of Fulham and Manuel Akanji of Man City will also be certain to get tickets to Qatar.
Even though he is no longer playing in one of Europe's top divisions, Xherdan Shaqiri will be one of the first names on the final 26-man roster.
On the other hand, Granit Xhaka, Remo Freuler, and Denis Zakaria will be certain to go.
The primary forward for Switzerland, Haris Seferovic, will look to add to his goal total in Qatar. Along with Noah Okafor, who has been in good form this season, Ruben Varags and Breel Embolo will be hoping to make the cut.
The Swiss, who entered a seasoned team at the previous World Cup, are traveling to Qatar without a few well-known veterans like the now-retired Stephan Lichtsteiner and Valon Behrami. However, new leaders have taken the helm, and the Swiss will once more be an obstinate, well-prepared team.
