    The Swiss public has just voted in a referendum to restrict immigration, which could have a huge knock-on effect for the national football team.

    At the World Cup in Brazil this team will represent years of Switzerland looking outwards and opening its doors.

    The politics of the next few years, and the implementation of the law limiting immigration will determine how the Swiss teams of the future will look, and how the Switzerland of the future will look.
