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. In the past, his temperament has gotten the better of him but that is seemingly no longer a concern. Now a threat in the opposition box, as well as a presence in his own half Xhaka, could use the Qatar finals as a showcase of his maturation as a footballer.

Switzerland emerging player to look out for – Noah Okafor

It’s still a toss-up as to whether Noah Okafor is part of Switzerland’s final squad but the 22-year-old Red Bull Salzburg forward is catching the eye. He’s already bagged two international goals across eight appearances while his domestic form has Premier League outfits Nottingham Forest and Leeds United as well as Serie A giants AC Milan interested.

Switzerland tactical analysis & likely formation at the World Cup

Since taking charge Murat Yakin has predominantly utilised a 4-2-3-1 shape. He’s expected to retain that formation in Qatar though Yakin has in the past adopted a back-three (on debut against Greece) and a two-man attack (4-4-2 diamond against the Czech Republic in June 2022).
