Shaqiri is a bit of a unit isn't he. Like a washing machine running round.

Switzerland cruised into the World Cup last 16 tonight, with a 3-0 win over Honduras earning them a date with Argentina and Messi.
The outstanding player for Switzerland was without question Xherdan Shaqiri, who netted a brilliant hat-trick – becoming the 2nd player of the tournament to do so after Thomas Muller (coincidentally, both Bayern players).
And interesting, the Albanian-born Shaqiri’s stock will now probably shoot through the roof, as he adds ‘World Cup hat-trick’ to his CV.
With Liverpool already heavily linked with the Bayern fringe player, we can expect plenty more Premier League clubs to start sending the feelers out on Shaqiri now.
Shaqiri got a hat-trick. Get ready for Arsenal, Chelsea, Man Utd & Liverpool competing to sign him rumours. #transferwindow

At 22 Shaqiri has scored 3 world cup goals. I have today successfully buttered my bagel without it going through the hole in the middle.

Very impressed with #SUI especially Shaqiri. Amazing that their place is in the balance with 6 points on the board.

That hat-trick just increased his summer transfer window value by about £10million – Here's a happy Xherdan Shaqiri pic.twitter.com/LEkAZXzrWR
