Ahead of their crucial Group E fixture with Honduras on Wednesday night, Shaqiri believes that the focus should not always be on him as Ottmar Hitzfeld's squad look to secure a spot in the last 16 of the tournament.
"I am satisfied with my performance," the Bayern Munich attacking midfielder told reporters. "[But] one must not expect me to decide the games alone. The team needs me, I need the team.
"I do not care what is written about me. It is not all dependent on me. It annoys me. I cannot dribble from the back to the front. We are Switzerland, not Spain, not Brazil. Switzerland needs to be successful as a team."
Switzerland must better Ecuador's result against France to qualify from Group E.
