"The attacking midfielder is suffering from a painful inflammation in the groin," the FA announced on its website.

The 27-year-old Liverpool player missed training on Monday and was instead examined in a Zurich hospital.

Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic will name a replacement on Tuesday for their opening Euro qualifiers away to Georgia on Saturday and at home to Denmark three days later.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will hope Shaqiri is fit and ready for the Reds' concluding part of the season where the Merseyside club are expected to challenge for the Premier League and Champions League crowns
