Arsenal Man Called Up Despite International Retirement Claims

An Arsenal player who reports of his retirement surfaced in the media shortly after the Russia 2018 World Cup has been called up.

A number of Swiss news outlets revealed back in August that Stephan Lichtsteiner alongside Johan Djourou and Gelson Fernandes will be calling it quit on the international football scene and the fact that the last man on the list later gave a public announcement of his retirement made many believe that Lichtsteiner will follow.

The silence of Lichtsteiner over the speculation put a lot of people in the dark but the new development which has seen Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic include him in the team to feature during the coming international break places an end to what the press made us believe last month.

Also on the squad list is Granit Xhaka. The duo are expected to feature in either or both of their country's ties with Iceland and England.
