Switzerland's Xherdan Shaqiri Nearly Shows World His Package After Scoring Game-Winner

Xherdan Shaqiri celebrates a goal against Serbia.

Switzerland star Xherdan Shaqiri scored the game-winning goal for his squad against Serbia on Friday, and while it was an incredible score, his celebration has been what's going viral instead. Shaqiri celebrated like no other after scoring the eventual winner.

Switzerland, after falling behind 1-0 on a goal by Serbia's Aleksander Mitrovic, stormed back to score twice in the second half of the contest. The first came from Granit Xhaka - and the second with just seconds to play in regulation from Shaqiri.

Shaqiri's goal came on a counter. He beat the last defender on a run from midfield and slipped it past the goalkeeper into the back of the net.

After the score, Shaqiri took off his shirt in celebration. Fans noticed two things. One, he's ripped. Two, he almost showed the entire world his package. His shorts were all but coming down during the celebration.

Here's via, via FOX Sports. Fans snapped a few stills as well.

Shaqiri's goal was a huge deal, to say the last. After a tie against Brazil, the Swiss needed a win to ensure control of their own destiny in their final game of the group stage. The win over Serbia ensures Switzerland a spot in the Knockout Round if they can beat Costa Rica next week.

At the moment, Brazil and Switzerland are in control in Group E.
