Switzerland make it 5-2. The skill from Shaqiri to set the play up for the goal is sublime.— John Paul Walsh 🗽🇪🇺🇮🇪 (@jpwred316) November 18, 2018
The 27-year-old claimed two assists in the game where his teammate Haris Seferovic managed a hat trick after an early double from Thorgan Hazard had seemingly put Belgium out of reach.
Shaqiri went on to contribute to a third goal as well with a wonderful back-heel pass which set up the cross for Seferovic's third of the night.
Belgium were just ranked #1 but Shaqiri and Switzerland thought otherwise 💯💯— 𝑹𝑨𝑼𝑫𝑰𝑵 (@MarkMuga9) November 18, 2018
Liverpool next travel to Watford in the Premier League before their massive Champions league clash with French giants PSG. No doubt Jurgen Klopp will need the best from his Swiss star if Liverpool want to continue their great start to the season so far.
