Flag: Did you know that alongside that of the Vatican City, the Swiss flag is the only other sovereign-state flag that is square.  It’s a red background with a white cross inset in the middle.

Population: 8.37 million

Nickname: As a country with three offical languages (and four if you included Romansh) they can be known as Schweizer Nati (in German), La Nati (French) and the Squadra nazionale (Italian).

Manager: Former Lazio boss Vladimir Petkovic.

Captain: Juventus’ vastly-experienced full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner.

Star Man: Xherdan Shaqiri.  The Alpine Messi showed glimpses of his undoubted talent at the last World Cup in Brazil and he still has the potential to turn a game in an instant. Huge thighs too.
 
Rising star: Schalke striker Breel Embolo has long been tipped for greatness.  Will this be the moment he finally comes of age?
