Xhaka and Shaqiri start against Serbia

Captain Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri will start in Switzerland for the match against Serbia, which takes place within Group G. This match starts at 20:00 and takes place at "Stadium 974".

Shaqiri is back in the lineup after missing Brazil due to a thigh muscle problem.

Xhaka will play alongside Remo Freuler in front of the defence, which consists of Ricardo Rodriguez, Fabian Schar, Manuel Akanji and Silban Widmer.

In goal will be the second goalkeeper, Gregor Kobel, who has replaced Yann Sommer with flu.

Shaqiri will play on the right wing and together with Djibril Sowi and Ruben Vargas, they will support Breel Embolo who will play as a single striker.

Switzerland has three points, two more than Serbia, and with a win they would advance to the 1/8 finals of the World Cup.
