FIFA World Cup 2022: Swiss Most Promising Players Ready to Win?

Get to know about the 5 leadings players who will prove to be the most promising of them all for the Switzerland team in FIFA World Cup.

Swiss success in FIFA World Cup Qatar will depend heavily on having one of Europe’s top goalkeepers and highly skilled outfield players. Over the past few years, Switzerland has experienced prosperity. The Nati defeated FIFA World Cup champions France en route to the quarterfinals of the UEFA EURO last year, where they fell to Spain on penalties.

It is highly unlikely that the subsequent qualifying run for Qatar 2022 could have gone any better. Murat Yakin’s team overtook Italy at the top of the group with five victories, three draws, and 15 goals scored against just two goals conceded.

Five Swiss Athletes that are Promising:


Rodriguez, Ricardo

Placement: Left or centre back

Age: 30

Rodriguez has had an illustrious career to date. He represented his country in youth soccer and won the FIFA U-17 World Cup while also playing for Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga, where he made 149 appearances and won the DFB-Pokal. After a brief stint at PSV, he went on to play in more than 100 Serie A games, first for AC Milan and then for Torino.

Toby Xherdan Shaqiri

Placement: A winger or an attacking midfielder

Age: 30

The member of Yakin’s team with the most international appearances to his name—106 to be precise—along with 26 goals—is Shaqiri, who is known for his short (1.65 m) and stocky body. With 108 caps, Alain Geiger (112), and Heinz Hermann (112) ahead of him, he is ranked fourth overall (118).

Yankee Sommer

Goalkeeper Position

Age 33 years old

In every sense, Yann Sommer serves as the Swiss team’s backstop. The penalty-saving expert has consistently delivered strong performances for club and country, demonstrating his value on numerous occasions.

He made his international debut under Ottmar Hitzfeld in 2012 and now has 74 caps and a tonne of major tournament experience to his name after being the first choice in goal at Russia 2018 and the last two EUROs.

Granit Xhaka

Position: Midfielder

Age: 29

One of the more seasoned players on Murat Yakin’s team, Xhaka, has 104 caps and 12 goals. He is the captain and commanding officer of the Swiss team while working at Arsenal in his own country. Xhaka was born in Basel, but his family is from Kosovo and Albania, and his brother Taulant plays for Albania. He has a wide variety of weapons at his disposal. While he is frequently characterized as an aggressive on-field leader who never avoids a tackle, he is a very skilled footballer who can exploit defences with a deftly weighted pass.

Remo Freuler

Position: Midfielder

Age: 30

Freuler is yet another vital cog in the Swiss centre midfield. The 30-year-old joined Atalanta in 2016 and made more than 200 appearances for the team, many of them as captain and many of them in European play. Before this season, Freuler decided to transfer to Nottingham Forest. He is still getting used to the newly promoted club, and in the East Midlands, he frequently sits on the bench. Meanwhile, he has 46 caps for Switzerland and four goals to his name.
