World Cup group E: Serbia vs. Switzerland starting XIs, kick-off time and TV channel

Serbia could qualify for the round of 16 with victory against the Swiss

Serbia vs. Switzerland
  • When: Friday 22 June 
  • Kick-off time: 7pm 
  • Where: Kaliningrad Stadium, Kaliningrad 
  • TV channel: live on BBC One

Serbia come into the match against Switzerland as the group E leaders and know that a victory in Kaliningrad would secure them a place in the World Cup last-16.

Dusko Tosic believes Serbia must defend as a team against the Swiss if they are to get the result they need.

The defender told Fifa.com: “We have to position ourselves against Switzerland just like we did against Costa Rica, with all 11 of our players on defensive duty, from [Aleksandar] Mitrovic to goalkeeper [Vladimir] Stojkovic.

“This is the model that we have to take from that match to this one. It’s the only way we can win.”
