This will be the fifth consecutive appearance for the nation on football's grand stage

Switzerland are getting ready for its fifth consecutive World Cup appearance when they head to Qatar, having survived the group stages in three of their last four attempts. The furthest Swiss have only ever reached the quarter-finals, which they have done on three occasions (1934, 1938, 1954). The Swiss brought a veteran team into the last World Cup and are making the trip to Qatar without a few familiar stalwarts like now-retired Stephan Lichtsteiner and Valon Behrami, new faces have stepped up to lead, and the Swiss will once again be stubborn, well-drilled side. 

A tough task awaits at the World Cup, though, as they have paired with pre-tournament favourites Brazil, as well as Cameroon and Serbia. Murat Yakin has now confirmed his final 26-man squad for Qatar, with several Premier League-based stars making the final cut.

Here is the official 26-man squad for World Cup.

Goalkeepers: Yann Sommer(Borussia Monchengladbach), Jonas Omlin(Montpellier), Gregor Kobel(Dortmund), Philipp Kohn(Salzburg).

Defenders: Ricardo Rodriguez(Torino), Fabian Schar(Newcastle United), Manuel Akanji(Manchester City), Nico Elvedi(Borussia Monchengladbach), Silvan Widmer(Mainz 05), Eray Comert(Valencia).

Midfielders: Xherdan Shaqiri(Chicago Fire), Granit Xhaka(Arsenal), Remo Freuler(Nottingham Forest), Denis Zakaria(Chelsea), Djibril Sow(Eintracht Frankfurt), Renato Steffen(Lugano), Fabian Frei(Basel), Michel Aebischer(Bologna), Ardon Jashari(Luzern), Edimilson Fernandes(Mainz), Fabian Rieder(Young Boys).

Forwards: Breel Embolo(Monaco), Ruben Vargas(Augsburg), Noah Okafor(RB Salzburg), Haris Seferovic(Galatasaray), Christian Fassnacht(Young Boys).
