The Northern Ireland vs Switzerland 2022 World Cup UEFA qualifying match will be broadcast live online and on TV as the Green and White Army hosts Nati at Windsor Park this Wednesday, September 8, at 11:45 a.m. Pacific.
Northern Ireland is currently fourth place in Group C with just four points, but has two games in hand on group leaders Italy and third-place team Bulgaria. The Norn Iron has the same amount of games played as Switzerland, who is is second place, but a win by two goals or more has the potential to land Northern Ireland in that second-place spot.
Northern Ireland is coming off a dominant 4-1 away win against Lithuania, where four different players scored the goals for the Green and White Army. Some of the key players to watch for the Norn Iron in this game include experienced midfielder Steven Davis and striker Conor Washington, who scored against Lithuania.
Switzerland is undefeated in their three games in the qualifiers, coming off a very hard-fought clash against Italy. It is important for Switzerland to at least get a point out of this match with the current standings in Group C.
The Swiss side does have some key absences to the squad as Xherdan Shaqiri and Breel Emolo are out due to injuries. The attack will heavily rely on players like Haris Steforovic and Steven Zuber with these absences.
