Switzerland starting eleven World Cup 2018 includes world-class footballers that have already proven their worth by helping the team play almost without losses so far and even beating Portugal, the current European champions, out of all teams.
Let’s take a closer look at the best players in Switzerland and the line-up we are most likely to see at any given match in 2018 World Cup.
Switzerland Starting Eleven World Cup 2018
Some of the most important players in Switzerland squad are:
- Stephan Lichtsteiner
- Xherdan Shaqiri
- Admir Mehmedi
- Ricardo Rodriguez
- Granit Xhaka
- Denis Zakaria
Most of these players are either midfielders or defenders. The team holds well in the middle of the field, so it’s no surprise that they finished most of their matches so far without any goals conceded.
At the same time, they have a good attacking potential, especially in Granit Xhaka, one of the most notable members of the national squad.
All that in mind, we believe that Vladimir Petkovic can lead his team quite far this year, maybe even further than Switzerland has ever gone in any World Cup (quarter-finals on three different occasions).
Switzerland starting eleven will probably consist of the players listed above and some others, making a strong line-up that’s ready for the challenges of the tournament.
