Qualifying by the skin of their teeth in a 1-0 victory over Northern Ireland, Switzerland are through to the 2018 Russia World Cup and you can buy your Switzerland tickets here at Football Ticket Pad. Safely secure your tickets to spectate the swiss national team play in Russia with the hopes of winning the most prestigious trophy of all!
The Swiss boast an impressive record having featured ten times in the FIFA World Cup. Almost as impressive is their record heading into the 2018 Russia World Cup. Switzerland won nine out of their ten qualifying matches to finish second behind Portugal. They look very strong heading into the global tournament and should be taken very seriously this summer.
Players such as Granit Xhaka and Ricardo Rodriguez have already shared World Cup success by winning the U17 World Cup in 2009. They are now permanent fixtures in the senior team and will be looking to aid their team as much as possible with the hopes of lifting a World Cup trophy once more alongside well-known teammates like Xherdan Shaqiri, Valon Behrami and Gokhan Inler.
Switzerland qualified for Euro 2016 from Group E in second place with 21 points, only losing to England and Slovenia along the way. With Football Ticket Pad, Swiss fans from across the world have the chance to buy Switzerland Euro tickets for all of their games during the Championships and into the latter stages should they progress further.
Switzerland had a tough start to their qualification campaign playing against group favourites England, losing the tie 2-0 in the Swiss city of Basel.
They then travelled to Slovenia a month later and another tough match resulted in a 1-0 loss. This raised cause for concern for their hopes of qualification with other tricky opponents also to play in the group.
In the following game some confidence was restored into the national team as they ran-out 4-0 winners against international minnows San Marino, but still there was work to be done.
In the International break, Switzerland began to really kick start their campaign with a 4-0 win over Lithuania and a 3-0 victory over Estonia. Victories over these two qualification hopefuls from group E restoring some of the faith from the Swiss fanbase.
In the summer international break a tricky test lay ahead for the national side as they travelled to Lithuania but goals from star men Xherdan Shaqiri and Josip Drmic secured a 2-1 victory in Vilnius.
In September, the Swiss welcomed Slovenia, their main rivals in the group behind England for qualification. In a exciting end to end match Switzerland ran out 3-2 winners and took control of the race for automatic qualification behind pace setters England who were yet to drop a single point.
In the following game of this international break the Swiss Euro ticket holders travelled to London for the toughest test of the group playing against undefeated England at Wembley. The game ended in a 2-0 loss against the eventual group winners and confided Vladimir Prlkovic’s team to focusing on finishing in the second automatic qualification place behind England.
The penultimate game of the campaign saw Switzerland play the group's bottom placed side San Marino in St. Gallen, where they ran out 7-0 winners and booked their place at the Euro 2016 Championships in France.
In the final game of the group, a 1-0 victory in Estonia further confirmed the national team's right to compete at the euros in France this summer.
After a shaky start to the qualification campaign the Swiss enjoyed a strong finish to the group and with star men like Shaqiri also performing well in the Premier League they will hope for continued success in France. Football Ticket Pad has Switzerland tickets available for all their matches at the Euros and can provide a 100% authenticity guarantee on all Swiss football tickets for the tournament.
Xherdan Shaqiri has only been in the Premier League for one season but he only needed only a few months to set it alight. No one was surprised when the Swiss international needed no time to settle in at Stoke City having been at European giants, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan before his summer transfer. It was quite some acquisition by Stoke who in many people eyes have been punching above their weight in the transfer market. Shaqiri will be looking to carry over his pre tournament form into the summer! You can order Switzerland Euro tickets to follow his progress and see how his country gets on.
Again, Xherdan Shaqiri plays a major role for Switzerland by being their main goal threat. Shaqiri was their leading scorer in Euro qualifying with four goals and he will be hoping to add to his 17 goals in Swiss colours at France Euro 2016. Dubbed 'The Alpine Messi' Shaquiri has a searing shot and fantastic control. Despite his small stature he is difficult to shrug off the ball and is a real threat when running at defenders. He bagged a handful of goals at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil including a hat-trick against Honduras. No other Swiss player can boast as many goals as Shaqiri at the World Cup and it's likely if to be no different at Euro 2016 with Switzerland's lack of top strikers. Shaqiri can be relied upon for goals and with a solid back line display Switzerland can make the quarters and beyond if the Stoke playmaker can get going.
One to watch out for
Breel Embolo, The Cameroon born youngster is a striker who is really coming of age and at 19 years-old he is a very promising talent in the Swiss squad. Embolo plays for Swiss champions Basel and is a strong striker with blistering pace. The striker has represented Switzerland from under 16 level to under 21s before being introduced to the senior squad in 2015 aged 17. Embolo has since played nine times for his country, scoring one goal in Euro qualifying against San Marino and could well be one of Switzerland's surprise stars this summer at Euro 2016 in France.
We've selected Fabian Schär for this one. The Hoffenheim defender is coming of age and should he be a regular at Euro 2016 there will be the opportunity to catch the eye of Europe's best scouts. He will do well to keep quiet a world class French frontline but against teams like Romania and Albania he will be hoping to quel any threat presented to him. It will be intriguing to see how this youngster conducts himself on the field in front of the world's prying eyes and against some of the best teams in Europe if the Swiss progress. You can see him and Switzerland live in France with Switzerland Euro 2016 tickets at Football Ticket Pad.
The Euro 2016 draw has thrown up an Albania v Switzerland tie on 11th June in Lens. This tie is eagerly awaited by all of Albania who are taking part in their first ever European championships.

Switzerland have never lost to Albania in their six previous meetings, winning five and drawing one. Switzerland last played Albania in the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers winning both matches 2-0 and 2-1 respectively. Xherdan Shaqiri scored in both matches, a player who himself has Kosovar-Albanian roots, will be looking to put Albania to the sword again and help his Switzerland team hit the ground running.
