It is expected that the Swiss team will make its twelfth appearance at the FIFA World Cup 2022. On November 24, 2022, Switzerland will face Cameroon in their first match of the tournament at the Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah, which will be their first match in the tournament. As a member of Group G, Switzerland will be competing against Brazil, Serbia, and Cameroon at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Switzerland is expected to announce its World Cup 2022 squad in October of this year. The team led by Murat Yakin qualified for the tournament by winning their qualification group and finishing two points in advance of Italy, who finished third, and nine in advance of Northern Ireland, who finished fourth.
Switzerland will be appearing at the World Cup for the 12th time. The first time they hosted the tournament was in 1934, and twenty years later they hosted the tournament for the second time.
In the past, Switzerland has reached the quarterfinals of the World Cup three times before but hasn’t done so since 1954 when they reached the quarterfinals on home soil. Three out of the last four tournaments in which they have participated have ended with them being eliminated in the round of 16.
FIFA World Cup 2022 Switzerland Squad
How many players are Switzerland allowed to take to the Fifa World Cup 2022?
For the first time at a major tournament, national managers were permitted to bring 26 players to the European Championship last summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while last year’s Copa America allowed managers to bring squads of 28 players, as a special measure brought in due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
When will the final Switzerland Fifa World Cup 2022 squad be announced?
The 2022 World Cup will be held in November and December of that year. Due to the extreme heat in Qatar during the summer, the tournament was moved from its usual time slot in June and July. In Qatar, where temperatures sometimes exceed 50 degrees Celsius in the summer, playing football is virtually impossible.
FIFA has set a deadline of October 20 for the submission of squads for the Fifa World Cup 2022. There are 30 days left until the tournament gets underway with Senegal vs the Netherlands, which is the first match of the tournament.
Who will make the final Switzerland Fifa World Cup 2022 squad?
There is no doubt that Xherdan Shaqiri is plying his trade in the United States at the moment, but that has not adversely affected his performance at Liverpool forward, who has now made 102 appearances for Switzerland, will be present in Qatar.
There is another dead cert for the squad in the form of Granit Xhaka, who has had a good campaign with Arsenal this season. Having reached a total of 100 international caps earlier this year, he has also now attained the treble figures for international caps.
A 33-year-old goalkeeper, Yann Sommer, will add further experience to the Swiss team. The majority of Switzerland’s key players are now in their 30s (or will be by the time the tournament gets underway), but the 25-year-old striker Breel Embolo is expected to be one of the key players.
