Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka played a big role for Switzerland in their win over Georgia in what was their opening game of the Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Xhaka helped the Swiss team dominate the midfield for a large duration of the game.

Switzerland scored two goals in the second half to earn a 2-0 win over Georgia away from home.

Vfb Stuttgart FC of Germany midfielder Steven Zuber gave Switzerland the lead after 57 minutes before Denis Zakaria wrapped up the victory for the visitors with ten minutes left on the clock.

Denis Zakaria plays his club football for German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Moenchengladbach at the moment.

Xhaka received a yellow card shortly before the end of the game with the result already confirmed.

In the other Group D game, Stoke City midfielder Jeff Hendrick scored the only goal of the game to give the Republic of Ireland a 1-0 win over Gilbratar away from home.

Denmark are the fifth and final team in the group and they will start their Euro 2020 qualifiers with a trip to Basel to take on Switzerland.

Arsenal fans will be hoping that Granit Xhaka stays injury free ahead of the Gunners’ home game against Newcastle United in their Premier League clash in eight days’ time.
