Liverpool winger Downing eager for Euro start
Downing is keen to seize the opportunity to play his way into the starting XI by turning in a quality performance against the Swiss outfit.
"You want to play every game," he told liverpoolfc.com. "We've not got off to a great start [in the league] but we've had some tough fixtures and if there are places up for grabs, now is our chance to stake a claim and it will be another tough test for us.
"I just want to do well every game and hopefully start tonight and be in contention for the weekend."
