The new Arsenal signing was hugely impressive in his nation's Euro 2016 win.
Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka was in fine form as Switzerland beat Albania this weekend.
The midfielder became Arsenal’s first signing of the summer transfer window last month as he completed a big money move from Borussia Monchengladbach.
He is a part of the Switzerland squad competing at Euro 2016 this summer and was a starter in the opening game clash with Albania on Saturday afternoon.
Arsenal fans were naturally keen to see how their new man would fare, and they will have been impressed by what they saw. The midfielder was key for his national side as he posted a number of impressive stats in the 1-0 victory over their rivals.
As the table provided by WhoScored shows, the midfielder was heavily involved throughout the game.
