Switzerland would be hoping for a better performance than the one they managed in 2018 in Russia. Out of the possible 22 tournaments in the history of the FIFA world cup, Switzerland has managed to qualify for 12 of them. Their qualification to the tournament in Qatar became their fifth consecutive participation, breaking the previous record of 4 between 1934 and 1954.
They can take some positives from their performance at the euros last year, as they knocked out France in the round of 16 and managed to qualify for the last eight at the tournament. That was their best showing, in 5 appearances at the Euros, from a total of 16 tournaments. Switzerland has always been a passenger at the tournaments, but slowly they are trying to change that narrative.
Switzerland Team FIFA World Cup Kits
Puma is the kit manufacturer for Switzerland and, the emblem of the Swiss. FA is on the opposite side of the Puma logo, and this is the case for both sets of jerseys. Like many other teams, they travel with two kits in the wardrobe, the first being red in colour, whereas the second being white in colour.
The Swiss first kit is nothing special, in my opinion, it is predominantly red, and the only possible hint of some designing that went into creating the kit was that they added a layer of straight lines near the top of the kit. The emblem is on the left, with the logo in the centre and the national flag on the right side of the kit. The straight lines are white in colour, which, admittedly, does work well, but it is not enough and does not conform to the norm of being stylish wear for the general public.
The Swiss second kit is a lot better than their red kit, but nothing is far better than what is already out there. It is predominantly white, and the kit is different from the first one, as it is more central than top-focused. The white lines have followed, but in the centre, they add more depth than what was seen in the first kit.
