Diary

Friday, 31 August 2018 - Young Boys players Djibril Sow and Kevin Mbabu have been named in Switzerland’s squad to play Iceland and England ahead of their Champions League debuts. Sow, a 21-year-old midfielder, and Mbabu, a 23-year-old defender, are also preparing to play Juventus and Manchester United after helping Young Boys win a first Swiss title for 32 years. Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic also called up uncapped Basel forward Albian Ajeti, who has ethnic Albanian family ties like Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka. They made headlines at the World Cup for pro-Kosovo goal celebrations against Serbia. Petkovic also recalled Edimilson Fernandes, Timm Klose and Silvan Widmer who missed World Cup selection.

Monday, 3 September 2018 - Goalkeeper Roman Bürki has withdrawn from the squad because of a muscle problem with his right thigh. Petkovic has called up a replacement, Hoffenheim's Gregor Kobel.

Saturday, 8 September 2018 - Switzerland overwhelm Iceland in their first UEFA Nations League match. First half goals from Steven Zuber and Denis Zakaria, was followed in the second half with goals from Xherdan Shaqiri, Haris Seferović, Albian Ajeti and Admir Mehmedi, as they ran out 6-0 winners.
