Match ends, Switzerland 6, Iceland 0.
Xherdan Shaqiri produced a dominant display as Switzerland thrashed Iceland 6-0 in the Uefa Nations League.
The Liverpool midfielder scored one goal and had a hand in two others as the hosts made a perfect start to their Group A2 campaign.
Shaqiri got Switzerland's third with a brilliant free-kick after goals from Steven Zuber and Denis Zakaria.
Haris Seferovic made it 4-0 before Albian Ajeti and Admir Mehmedi completed the rout.
Shaqiri was a constant menace from set pieces, with Seferovic and Mehmedi's goals coming following the former Stoke player's free-kicks.
Liverpool signed Shaqiri from the Potters for £13m in July, but he has yet to start for Jurgen Klopp's side.

They'll make the Euros, no problem. The Swiss are very good, a bit English in the sense that they breeze through qualifying stages but rarely ignite in the tournament itself!
I was impressed by Shaq with Stoke and was hoping LFC would sign him.
I cannot understand why Shelvey is not in the England team.
A good all-round Swiss performance though; could beat all but the very best - that's why the Nations League works for me. Rewards everyone at their own level.
So what about the clubs who’ve spent more than Liverpool then, surely they SHOULD win the title also given your methodology?
Unrealistic of course as there can only be one winner
