Switzerland midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri is eyeing a win over England to kick his side's Euro 2016 qualifying campaign off in the perfect fashion.

Switzerland midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri has targeted a win over England in his side's opening game of their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.

The Swiss haven't played since their second-round World Cup defeat to Argentina in Brazil, but Shaqiri is keen to increase the pressure on Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson with a victory.

He told reporters: "England will be coming with many young players who are not so well known, but we know they want to make amends for what went wrong at the World Cup.

"They will be coming here to win. But we will play our own game. And if we play as we can, we will win."

Shaqiri and his teammates take on England on Monday in Basel.
