Streller eager to impress

UEFA EURO 2004™ finalists Switzerland have called up new VfB Stuttgart signing Marco Streller to face Morocco.

UEFA EURO 2004™ finalists Switzerland have included new VfB Stuttgart signing Marco Streller in their squad for the first friendly of the year, against Morocco in Casablanca on 18 February.

Summer dreams
Under-21 international Streller only made his full debut as a substitute last October against the Republic of Ireland but has set his sights on a place in Jakob Kuhn's party for Portugal this summer. Streller, who will also be suspended for the first two games of the forthcoming UEFA European Under-21 Championship, joined Stuttgart from FC Basel 1893 last month.

Final friendly confirmed
The only notable absentee in Kuhn's 21-man selection is TSV 1860 München defender Remo Meyer because of a knee injury, while FC Twente striker Blaise N'Kufo has been ignored despite good form for his Dutch club. Meanwhile, the Swiss have completed their warm-up schedule for the summer by announcing a friendly against Liechtenstein in Zurich on 6 June, the day before they depart for Portugal.

Switzerland squad
Borer, Stiel, Zuberbühler, Berner, Haas, Henchoz, Magnin, Müller, Spycher, M Yakin, Zwyssig, Cabanas, Celestini, Vogel, Wicky, Huggel, H Yakin, Chapuisat, Frei, Rama, Streller.
