The best Tweets as Bayern’s Xherdan Shaqiri scores brilliant hat-trick in Honduras 0 – Switzerland 3

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.
