Xherdan Shaqiri

Liverpool winger produced a fantastic display for Switzerland as they thrashed Iceland 6-0 in the Uefa Nations League.

The summer Liverpool arrival was the best player on the pitch as he scored one and had a hand in two others as Switzerland made a perfect start to their Group A2 campaign.

Shaqiri was a constant menace and produced some excellent set-pieces, with Seferovic and Zakaria's goals coming following the former Stoke player's free-kicks, whilst he played a part in Mehmedi's late strike.

The number 23 got his name on the scoresheet as his free-kick clinched goal number three for the Swiss.

Switzerland next face England for a friendly fixture at the King Power Stadium in Leicester on Tuesday, before Shaqiri makes the short trip back to Liverpool.

His performance has got many Liverpool fans talking on social media and it's fair to say that many are very excited to see what he can bring to their side, potentially against Tottenham after the break.

Liverpool signed Shaqiri from the Potters for £13m in July, however he has yet to start for Jurgen Klopp's side in a competitive game this season.
