Xherdan Shaqiri is undoubtedly the greatest Albanian footballer, if we consider his fantastic career and trophies won, including two Champions Leagues.

Not only Albanian, but Shaqiri is also considered the greatest footballer with Swiss citizenship, since no one has had greater success than him. The star from Gjilan scored in three consecutive World Cups, 2014, 2018 and 2022, while this record is held only by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Being on such a list with Messi and Ronaldo is really a great pride", said Shaqiri for 'Blick'.

He scored a goal against Serbia and instead of the eagle, he celebrated with his finger to his mouth, silencing the Serbian fans, but also showing them his last name.

The 31-year-old says he had a lot of emotions in this match, but was focused on the match. "I knew from 2018 after the first game what would await us. It was an exciting match, but I was only focused on my performance", Shaqiri declared.

He was substituted in the 69th minute and was seen to be upset after the substitution, with cameras filming him hitting the bench. The former Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Inter, Lyon, Stoke City and Basel player said he wanted to score another goal.

"I was not satisfied with the substitution and I told this to the coach, but I accepted his decision. I wanted to be on the field and score another goal to win the group," Shaqiri declared.

In the 1/8 finals in the World Cup, Switzerland will face Portugal.
