Swiss team for Euro 2020: a full team of 26 players before the 2021 tournament
Who is their key player?
Opportunities may have been limited at Liverpool, but Shaqiri is still an integral part of his national team.
The gloriously nicknamed “Alpine Messi” has represented Switzerland at three World Cups as well as at Euro 2016 and has found the back of the net 23 times in 90 appearances for his country.
Shaqiri is a hero in his homeland and by far the most famous member of the team. The 29-year-old has won trophies at Basel, Bayern Munich and Merseyside, but international silverware should prove more elusive.
He will likely be used as No.10 during the tournament with Swiss fans hoping he will see as much of the ball as possible.
What is the full team?
Goalkeepers: Yann Sommer (Borussia Mönchengladbach), Yvon Mvogo (PSV), Jonas Omlin (Montpellier)
Defenders: Manuel Akanji (Borussia Dortmund), Loris Benito (Bordeaux), Nico Elvedi (Monchengladbach), Kevin Mbabu (Wolfsburg), Becir Omeragic (Zurich), Ricardo Rodriguez (Turin), Silvan Widmer (Basel), Fabian Schar (Newcastle United), Jordan Lotomba (Nice), Eray Comert (Basel)
