Switzerland will seek to win their first major international tournament at Euro 2024 this summer.

Switzerland key players for this year’s European Championship

Switzerland top Euros Golden Boot contender: Zeki Amdouni

  • Key stat: Zeki Amdouni leads all Burnley players for total shots (40), shots on target (21) and overall expected goals (4.33) this campaign

During their qualifying campaign, Burnley forward Zeki Amdouni finished as Switzerland’s top scorer with six goals. The 23-year-old striker joined Vincent Kompany’s team last summer from FC Basel, where he scored 22 goals in 52 matches. So far in his inaugural Premier League season, the Geneva-born marksman has performed modestly well, considering how much the Clarets have been struggling. Amdouni has featured in 27 of Burnley’s opening 29 matches, netting four goals and becoming the club’s joint-top scorer.

Since debuting in an 11-minute cameo against the Czech Republic, he’s bided his time before regularly featuring with the Swiss international team. During this time, he’s been utilised across their front line.

Switzerland primary playmaker: Xherdan Shaqiri

  • Key stat: Xherdan Shaqiri is one of three players to score at each of the last three World Cup tournaments – the others are Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Among the most experienced names on Switzerland’s current team is Xherdan Shaqiri, who now plies his trade with the Chicago Fire across the pond. Having debuted in 2020, the 32-year-old forward will make his third European Championship appearance. Shaqiri remains a creative force despite entering the twilight of his career. He finished as his nation’s leading creator (three goals) and currently has four assists in Major League Soccer. Along with his 30 international goals, Shaqiri has 34 assists, with two of those previously coming on the Euro stage.

Switzerland card magnets & top tacklers: Remo Freuler

  • Key stat: The red card received by Remo Freuler (after 16 minutes and 57 seconds) for Atalanta v Real Madrid in 2021 is the fastest get by an Italian side in Champions League history.

Granit Xhaka and Manuel Akanji were the biggest offenders during Switzerland’s qualifying program, receiving three yellow cards each. However, both are calm compared to Remo Freuler, who has picked up eight at club level in the 2023/24 season. On loan at Bologna, the current Nottingham Forest midfielder has committed 35 fouls, though fewer than compatriots Kevin Mbabu (36) and Vincent Sierro (43). Freuler joined the Swiss national team in 2017 and has made over 60 appearances. He has subsequently netted eight goals while picking up five yellows and being sent off once.

Switzerland rising star: Noah Okafor

Having come through FC Basel’s esteemed youth set-up, Noah Okafor scored seven times across 54 outings for the senior team before relocating to Red Bull Salzburg, where his development went into overdrive. Courting plenty of interest across Europe’s major clubs, in no short order because of his 34 strikes and 23 assists in 110 outings, Milan won Okafor’s signature. Okafor, though, has been pretty much a squad player in Stefano Pioli’s team, with him only starting five Serie A games. That being said, the native of Binningen has returned with five goals from 21 league appearances, and with Switzerland, he’s only produced two strikes, both coming in competitive outings.

Switzerland tactical analysis and formation

Switzerland team stats from qualifying (average per game):

  • Corners in qualifying: 2.6
  • Corners conceded: 2.4
  • Shots on target: 5.9
  • Shots on target conceded: 2.5
  • Offsides: 2.6

Since assuming control of the Swiss national team in September 2021, the former international Murat Yakin has overseen 32 matches while boasting a 43.75% winning record. When setting out his team, Yakin used seven different formations, alternating between four in defence and back-threes. His most common lineup has been 4-2-3-1, and the expectation is Switzerland will form that way in Germany, though Yakin has experimented with 3-4-2-1, 3-5-2, and 3-4-3. The personnel will be the same regardless of formation, with Yann Sommer keeping the goal and Premier League stalwarts Fabian Schär and Manuel Akanji in defence. At the same time, veterans Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri will play further upfield.
