With 42 goals from 84 appearances, Alexander Frei is Switzerland’s all-time leading goalscorer.

The striker’s impressive record of a goal every two international games underpinned Swiss successes during a period between 2004 and 2010 when they qualified for four successive major tournaments.

After missing out on UEFA EURO 2012, the Swiss will be back on the big stage at Brazil 2014. But they will, of course, be without their greatest ever marksman, who brought down the curtain on his distinguished international career in 2011.
