Coach: Vladimir Petkovic

Star player: Xherdan Shaqiri

How they got here: Qualified for their fourth straight World Cup by beating Northern Ireland in a play-off via a controversial penalty. They have made it out of their group in two of the previous three and that will be the minimum aim this time around.

Squad news: Petkovic is blessed with a near enough fully-fit squad to choose from with a shoulder problem for Valon Behrami his only slight concern.
