Switzerland midfielder Hakan Yakin will not play any part in their upcoming matches against England and Australia due to a thigh injury.

The 33-year-old sustained the knock during a league match for his club Lucerne on Sunday and has been declared unfit to play by the Swiss football federation.

He will not be available for their friendly against Australia or the start of their European Championship qualifying campaign, when they face the Three Lions in Basle.

Yakin is one of the Swiss' most experienced campaigners with 84 caps and a mainstay in the side over the past 10 years, as well as one of the few creative players in their side.
