Switzerland: The Swiss side known for their famous victory over Spain, the eventual winners of 2010 world cup in last edition will look forward to improving their recent records. The sixth ranked side led by Captain Gokhan Inler consists of a bunch of young players like 21 year-old play-maker Granit Xhaka and Xhardhan Shaqiri. Even though Ottmar Hitzfeld’s side lacks the experience, Switzerland can count on history as they have reached the quarter-finals thrice, the last in 1954 when they hosted the event.
France: Having managed to help the national side win the World Cup as a player (1998), Didier Deschamps will be hoping he can do the same as the manager for the side. With a relatively young side, France can make a difference in the World Cup this time, looking to improve on a terrible run in South Africa.
