Switzerland 2014 World Cup Home JerseyFans of the Swiss national team begrudgingly admit that their favorite team hasn't really had much success in the FIFA World Cup. In fact, we haven't seen the red and white colors of Switzerland football shirts on the better side of the quarterfinals since they hosted the games in 1954. But recently, things have been looking up for head coach Ottmar Hitzfeld and the Swiss squad, and it's starting to look like the Switzerland national soccer team might be a serious contender in this year's games.

The stylish Switzerland 2014 World Cup home jersey, which will be worn this summer by captain Gökhan Inler and the entire Swiss team, is available now at Soccer Box. Soccer Box has all the essential Switzerland national team gear and merchandise to show your support for the European underdog. Find some Swiss football colors for the whole family at the Soccer Box shop, your one stop store for official football fan gear and kit.

The Little Swiss Miracle Growing

The event in Swiss football known as "The Little Swiss Miracle" is certainly an often and fondly recalled memory for fans of the Switzerland national team. In 2002 the Switzerland Under-17 squad found victory at the European Championship, only to follow up with another championship victory in 2009. As if that wasn't enough, the Under-21 squad made an appearance in the European Championship finals just 2 years later in 2011.

This fortuitous turn of events changed the face of Swiss international football, and is an auspicious omen for those hoping to see Switzerland play a bigger role in this year's World Cup. The team is full of players who made The Little Swiss Miracle possible in the first place, and fans, and team officials are expecting a great performance from the young and enthusiastic team. Why not show your Swiss team spirit with a Switzerland 2014 World Cup home jersey to wear on kickoff day when your favorite team takes to the field this June.

Signs of improvement are already beginning to show for the Switzerland national team. They cruised comfortably through their qualifying rounds, going unbeaten in all 10 games and ending the qualifier with 24 points to Iceland's next best total of 17. Switzerland also had the good fortune to play the host team of Brazil in a friendly match last August and managed a victory, showing that the Swiss squad is now a serious threat on the international stage.

Switzerland's Star Players

The Swiss national team has received a bit of a facelift recently. The squad is full of fresh young faces, eager to prove their team's worth on the international level. These newcomers will be sporting the Switzerland 2014 World Cup home jersey at the games in Brazil, so show your support with the official fan version from Soccer Box!

The team's most prominent players, like the Swiss midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri from Bayern Munich, have been making waves and fans are taking notice. The aggressive tactics exhibited by the talented Shaqiri have given the Switzerland national team a taste for pugnacious techniques on the pitch. Other featured players include Granit Xhaka and Gökhan Inler, who round out this superstar squad.

Coach Ottmar Hitzfeld is pleased to see his team make it to the World Cup once more, especially since he will be officially stepping down from his duties as coach once the games conclude. His legacy will be a team of talented young players that his successor will guide as they mature into the great team they are destined to be. Whether or not Coach Hitzfeld will leave his team of talented young players as FIFA World Champions remains to be seen, but fans remain optimistic.
