Michael Lang's first appearance at a major tournament arrived at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™. The 6'1" (1.85 metres) defender cut his teeth at St. Gallen, coming through the club's youth academy before making his debut in the Swiss Super League when he was just 16 to become one of the three youngest players to ever appear in the country's top flight.

Lang represented Switzerland from the U-16s through to the U-20s and took part at the UEFA U-17 and U-19 European Championships in Turkey and Ukraine respectively. The right-back was handed his senior international debut by then coach Ottmar Hitzfeld in August 2013 in a friendly against Brazil, coming on as a 62nd-minute substitute.
