Debutants Albania will be looking to start their Euro 2016 campaign on a high as they face Switzerland in the second match of the tournament at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis on Saturday.

The match is also quite interesting as for the first time in Euro history, two brothers will compete against each other when Granit Xhaka takes the field for Switzerland against his brother Taulant Xhaka in Albania’s colours.

Albania XI: Berisha, Hysaj, Cana, Mavraj, Agolli; Kukeli, Roshi, Abrashi, Xhaka, Lenjani, Sadiku.

Switzerland XI: Lichtsteiner, Schär, Djourou, Rodriguez; Behrami, Dzemaili, Xhaka; Shaqiri, Seferovic, Mehmedi
