Xherdan Shaqiri (born 10 October 1991) is a Swiss footballer who plays as a midfielder for English club Stoke City, and the Swiss national team. FIFA's official website describes him as "unpredictable on the ball, adept with both feet, clinical in front of goal and possessing excellent vision". He is nicknamed "the Alpine Messi" and "the magic dwarf".

He began his career at FC Basel, winning honours including three Swiss Super League titles, before moving to Bayern Munich, where he gained domestic and international honours despite playing less frequently. In January 2015 he moved to Inter Milan, and seven months later to Stoke City for a club record £12 million.

A full international since 2010, Shaqiri has earned over 45 caps for Switzerland. He represented the nation at the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cups.
