Club History

The 2018 World Cup will be the fourth straight tournament Switzerland has qualified for. The Swiss will most likely be competing for the runner-up place in the group, as Brazil should take top spot. Switzerland continue to put in consistent performances to get to tournaments but getting past the round of 16 in a major competition is still something the team is trying to accomplish. A world-class striker could be the thing missing from the Swiss making it to the quarterfinals. Regardless, Vladimir Petkovic has a side that can get into the knockout stages.
