[2024 European Cup Switzerland] Switzerland are heading to the Euros for the sixth time in their history and here we look at their Euro 2024 squad.

Switzerland have participated in five UEFA European Championships between 1996 and 2020. They are set to register their sixth appearance in the competition this year. The team has progressed beyond the group stage on two occasions, reaching the Round of 16 in 2016 and the quarter-finals in 2020, marking their first time advancing so far. However, their journey ended in the latter tournament when they were defeated by Spain on penalties after a 1-1 draw in extra time.

They will be looking to beat their best result when they head for the 2024 edition. But who will make Murat Yakin's squad for the Euro 2024? 

With over 80 caps to his name, 35-year-old Inter Milan goalkeeper Yann Sommer is expected to be the first choice in goal for Switzerland at Euro 2024.
Yvon Mvogo will act as a capable backup if needed.

Name Club
Yann Sommer  Inter Milan
Yvon Mvogo Lorient
David von Ballmoos Young Boys

Switzerland's defence is one area that is not likely to have any surprise inclusions when the squad is announced. Manchester City's Manuel Akanji, Borussia Monchengladbach's Nico Elvedi and the experienced veteran Ricardo Rodriguez will be guaranteed starters at Euro 2024.
There is also the experience of Fabian Schar and Silvan Widmer as back-up options, ready to get into the lineup if the situation demands their inclusion.

Name Club
Kevin Mbabu      FC Augsburg
Silvan Widmer      Mainz 05
Nico Elvedi      Borussia Mönchengladbach
Manuel Akanji      Manchester City
Ricardo Rodriguez Torino
Ulisses Garcia Marseille
Cédric Zesiger VfL Wolfsburg
Eray Cömert Nantes
Fabian Schär Newcastle United
Bećir Omeragić Montpellier

Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka are undoubtedly the biggest players in the Switzerland roster. They will always be present in the starting lineup unless injuries get in the way. Shaqiri is expected to play higher up the field whereas the former Arsenal midfielder is expected to drop deep in the midfield.
Remo Freuler and Michel Aebischer will also be in the mix, competing for first-team opportunities at the Euros.

Name Club
Denis Zakaria Monaco
Remo Freuler Bologna
Granit Xhaka (captain) Bayer Leverkusen
Uran Bislimi Lugano
Michel Aebischer Bologna
Xherdan Shaqiri (vice-captain) Chicago Fire
Vincent Sierro Toulouse
Dereck Kutesa Servette

In what is likely to be a two-man partnership in the final third, Zeki Amdouni and Noah Okafor will be expected to pair up and wreak havoc in front of the opponents' goal at the biggest stage in Europe.
Ruben Vargas, Renato Steffen and Dan Ndoye will be fighting for places in the final third, especially down the flanks.

Name Club
Zeki Amdouni Burnley
Noah Okafor Milan
Renato Steffen Lugano
Ruben Vargas FC Augsburg
Dan Ndoye Bologna
