Switzerland confirm World Cup squad; Granit Xhaka, Stephan Lichtsteiner included
Switzerland's 23-man World Cup squad includes Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka and transfer target Stephan Lichtsteiner.
Xhaka suffered an injury scare in the run-in to the squad deadline, while Lichtsteiner has insisted his focus is on Russia and not talk of a move to the Emirates Stadium.
Stoke's want-away winger Xherdan Shaqiri also features but West Ham's Edimilson Fernandes has been cut after featuring in their 1-1 draw with Spain on Sunday.
Switzerland will head to Russia with 17 of the same players who went to Euro 2016, while nine have at least 50 caps.
Their first World Cup game comes against Brazil on June 17, before they face Serbia on June 22 and Costa Rica on June 27.
