Switzerland player to watch – Granit Xhaka
Among the most experienced players in Switzerland’s squad the defensive midfielder, who suddenly taken on a box-to-box role for club side Arsenal, will need to play a foundational role in more ways than one if the central European nation is to go deep into this forthcoming tournament.
