The best books about the History of the Switzerland National Team.
These are the books that I have chosen:
‘80 Anni di Calcio Svizzero’
Author: Armando Libotte
Published in 1985.
Written Language: Italian
This small book has all Switzerland lineups (as well as opponents) for every Portugal match until 1985.
There are few archival photographs, the format is that of an Almanaque.
‘L'Equipe de Suisse’

Published in 1993.
Written Language: French
This book deals with the History of the Swiss National Team with many stories, anecdotes and many archival photographs.

‘IFFHS, Schweiz,Suisse, Svizzera (1905-1940)’
Author: Alfred Meister and Kurt Trefzer
Published in 2001.
Written Language: English/French/German/Italian
Just like the other excellent IFFHS National team publications, this deals with Switzerland’s National Team during the Pre-War era with all lineups, anecdotes and excellent and rare archival photographs.
‘IFFHS, Schweiz,Suisse, Svizzera (1905-1940)’ Cover
‘Die Nati, Die Geschichte der Schweizer Fussball-Nationalmanschaft’
Author: Beat Jung
Published in 2006.
Written Language: German
This book deals with the History of Swiss National Team with many archival photographs.
Similar to ‘L’Equipe de Suisse’, this is not a statistical book, but more about the History and stories surrounding the National Team.
