FIFA World Cup 2022 Switzerland Team Preview
Stephan Lichtsteiner and Valon Behrami, two long-serving Swiss players, will not travel to Qatar for the World Cup.
With new leaders in place, the Swiss squad will be formidable and well-organized once more.
Granit Xhaka’s improved club performance this season has made him a formidable weapon for Arsenal’s Premier League-winning squad.
He and Xherdan Shaqiri of the Chicago Fire will both tie Qatar’s record for most international games played (120).
Breel Embolo will be expected to spearhead the assault, as seen by his strong start in Ligue 1.
The Swiss squad has a well-deserved reputation for being well-trained and talented on the field.
Defense is bolstered by Mauel Akanji, Fabian Schar, and Ricardo Rodriguez. According to a recent interview, Akanji appears to be equally adept in arithmetic as he is at soccer.
Despite the fact that none of the players are very flashy, this team is well-rounded. When confronted with a formidable defense, the Swiss may cease to look beyond the box. Shaqiri’s talents are deteriorating at the age of 31.
