Switzerland had to work hard to battle past Albania in their Euro 2016 opener with Granit Xhaka making his debut in the competition.
Arsenal fans on Twitter were impressed with the 23-year-old's performance after he played the full 90 minutes for his country.
Xhaka was OK. Fairly clever in his movement and positioning he wasn't just running into people like we're used to w/ Coq/Flam #AFC

Xhaka was superb but we still need a striker #AFC

Xhaka looks so comfortable on the ball & rarely loses it, he will dictate our play like Arteta used to, but is stronger & a better tackler!

Like what I've seen of granit xhaka, will take our DM play up a notch. #afc

If Xhaka plays anything like he's playing today, he's gonna be awesome for our midfield next season. #afc
