Switzerland has unveiled their official 26-men World Cup Squad as they prepare to travel to Qatar for its fifth straight World Cup appearance.

With the World Cup in Qatar just a week away, all the participating nations are starting to announce their final squads for the tournament.

On the 9th of November 2022, Coach Murat Yakin will lean on experience at the World Cup in Qatar naming Switzerland’s final 26-man squad for the Qatar tournament, which included Granit Xhaka, Xherdan Shaqiri, and Chelsea on-loan midfielder Denis Zakaria in a 26-man squad for this month’s tournament.

The Swiss kick off their World Cup campaign in Group G and face Cameroon on Thursday, 24 November, at the Al Wakrah Sports Complex.

Switzerland, which has entered the quarterfinal twice in tournament history, qualified for the tournament after topping the 2022 World Cup qualification UEFA Group C, ahead of European champion Italy.

“We were spoiled for choice in some positions,” Yakin said in a statement.

“Many players have delivered convincing performances in recent weeks and months. But in the end I had to limit myself to 26 names. I’m convinced that these 26 players can always help us to achieve our goals.”
