To be honest I don't know that much about their individual players but I have seen their matches against Switzerland, England, Slovenia and watched highlights of the other two matches. After winning the the first two some players and fans might have started to dream but then it was back to reality through three consecutive losses without scoring a single goal. Not to sound mean or anything but their current squad is simply not good enough to fight for a spot among the best two or three teams.

The Swiss national team can be hard to predict at times, sometimes they lack motivation and sometimes everyone seems to play only for themselves. More often than they should, they struggle against weaker teams, especially when it's their job to attack and create chances.
They really messed up in their away game to Slovenia which they never should have lost, conceeding on an unnecessary penalty in the last few minutes after completely dominating the game but that's often what happens if you squander too many opportunities.
With all that said, Switzerland is still a good team with lots of skilled players. Furthermore, under new trainer Petkovic they have been playing better recently and shouldn't have many problems against a team like Lithuania.
Breel Embolo, the talented young forward from FC Basel, has been called up for his first competitive match and will be highly motivated to demonstrate his worth should he get the chance to play some minutes.

>>> Switzerland defeated Lithuania "only" 4-0 at home in a game they completely dominated from start to finish. They could have, should have scored a few more goals but hopefully they saved those for the reverse fixture. I am expecting a similar game, where Switzerland dominates possesion, creates chances and eventually scores a few goals. Lithuania will defend and hope for some chances on counter attacks. A victory with at least two goals difference is the most likely outcome IMO but because it's an away game I
