Consider what are the chances of the “Red Crusaders” in the upcoming World Cup.

Brief information

Switzerland is a strong team that is a frequent guest at the World Championships. Playing against the well-coordinated defense of the European team is difficult for every opponent.
Let’s take a look at this team:

  • Switzerland is ranked 15th in the FIFA rankings.
  • The Swiss have participated in the World Championships eleven times and their best result is reaching the quarter-finals (3 times). At this stage, they ended their struggle in 1934 and 1938 and in 1954.
  • The Swiss national team played three times at the Olympic Games. The most memorable performance was the tournament in 1924. At the Paris Olympics, the Red Crusaders took second place, losing 0:3 to Uruguay in the final of the French tournament.
  • The Red Crusaders completed their participation in the 2006 World Cup in the 1/8 finals, losing to the Ukrainian team.

Notable players in the current roster

There are many skilled players in this team who play in the strongest clubs in the world. Among the most famous and significant football players, we highlight the following players:

  • Brel Embolo (Monaco).
  • Granite Xhaka (Arsenal).
  • Xherdan Shaqiri (Chicago).
  • Remo Freuler (Nottingham Forrest).
  • Manuel Akanji (Manchester City).
  • Yann Sommer (Borussia Mönchengladbach).

Switzerland’s Group G opponents

The Red Crusaders at the 2022 World Cup were in the same group with the national team of Brazil, Serbia and Cameroon. There is one clear favorite in this quartet – Brazil. The rest of the teams are likely to fight for second place.

The Swiss will play their first game at the Qatari World Cup against Cameroon. This is a great opportunity to get hold of three points at the start of the tournament and take 1st or 2nd place. The odds for Switzerland to win this match are 1.75, which means that the team of Murat Yakin is a decent favorite. The team will play the second match against the Brazilians. Here, bookmakers do not believe in success and the victory of Switzerland is estimated at 7.00. The final match of the group stage against Serbia could be the most important one and probably it will decide the fate of the 2nd place and the ticket to the playoffs. Bookmakers do not single out a clear favorite in this match, the odds for the victory of the Swiss team are 2.55, Serbia – 2.85.


Bookmakers believe that in the fight for 2nd place, the Red Crusaders have a slightly better chance than the Serbs and Cameroonians. The odds for this event are 1.90 (Serbia – 2.20, Cameroon – 3.50). We fully agree with such quotes and believe that Murat Yakin’s team has every chance not only to beat Serbia and Cameroon, but also to cause problems for the Brazilians. This team has a strong line-up of players who play in strong European clubs, has the necessary experience of playing in major tournaments, as well as a set game, including a defensive one.

Let’s try to assume that the Swiss team will take 2nd place in Group G and get a ticket to the playoffs, where they will most likely meet with the Portuguese team.
