Vladimir Petkovic did not deliver any surprise from the leader in his last list of the year. Thus, the coach of the Swiss team maintains his confidence in Stephan Lichtsteiner.
Recalled last month for both games against Denmark (0-1) and Eire (2-0), the captain brings a list in which still does not appear Xherdan Shaqiri for meetings against Georgia on November 5 and to Gibraltar on November 18th. The other missing out is Breel Embolo, who is suffering from a muscle tear.
To face these two packages, Vladimir Petkovic recalled Christian Fassnacht and Ruben Vargas. The Young Boys' half and the Augsburg striker are, with this convocation, justly rewarded for their recent performances.
Switzerland must take four points in their two matches against Georgia, St. Gallen and Gibraltar to qualify directly for the finals of Euro 2020. It currently ranks third in Group D, a point from Ireland and Denmark.
