FIFA are coming under pressure from Serbia to charge the goalscorers for their celebrations – with them demanding a two-match ban which is laid down by FIFA regulations.
Shaqiri was born in Kosovo (a former Serbian province which declared independence in 2008).
Serbia do not recognise Kosovo’s independence and relations remain tense with many families choosing to move to other European counties including Switzerland.
What did Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka say about the gesture?
Speaking to reporters after the game, Shaqiri said: “You can see what I did and I think it’s just emotion. I’m very happy to score this goal. It was nothing more than that. I think we don’t have to speak about this now.”
Xhaka, said: “Frankly, my opponents did not interest me at all.
“It was for my people, who always supported me. For those who did not neglect me, in my homeland, where my parents’ roots are. These were purely pure emotions.”
Were Xhaka and Shaqiri punished for the celebration?
But Musah’s displays have not gone unnoticed as Fabrizio Romano claims Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta sent scouts out to the Middle East to watch their former player – with Inter Milan also keeping tabs on him.
The transfer expert told CBS: “Yunus Musah is also in the list of Premier League clubs.
“Arsenal recently sent their scouts to monitor him, but there are also other Premier League giants well informed on the Valencia midfielder.
“Inter Milan are interested too, but the price tag could be too high for them in January.

“Of course, Musah could leave Valencia between January and June.”
Born in New York, Musah played for England at every age group level up to U18.
He then declared for USA in 2020 – where he has already received 23 caps.

Ex-Rangers boss Gio van Bronckhorst in surprise job link after Ibrox axe
There’s plenty on the agenda that fans will want to discuss when they get their chance to quiz the board next month.
SunSport has all the details you need to know ahead of the event.
When and where is the Rangers AGM?
The meeting will take place TODAY – Tuesday, December 6.
The meeting will start at 10.30am.
It’s being held at the SEC Armadillo in Glasgow.
Can I attend Rangers’ AGM?
Rangers shareholders wishing to go were asked to confirm their attendance a few weeks ago.
What are the big issues likely to be?
The topic of the Ibrox boss has dominated the headlines in recent weeks.
After a dire run of form domestically and the ill-fated Champions League return, Gio van Bronckhorst was axed.
A familiar face has returned to the club with former first team coach Michael Beale installed as the number one.
It will be interesting to see the reaction to Beale’s return and whether it has quelled any unrest.
King vs Park
Dave King hasn’t been quiet in voicing his disappointment at the Rangers board in recent months and has revealed he will vote AGAINST the re-appointment of Douglas Park at the AGM.
King also admitted he will vote against key resolutions favoured by Ibrox directors on the allocation of shares.
He said: “I’ll be voting against three resolutions. The fact is, I was already having concerns about where this regime was headed.
“I felt voting against Graeme Park’s re-election last year would make that point. I had to put my money where my mouth was and use my vote to go along with what my concerns were.”

Ross Wilson was hailed as Rangers’ transfer guru just last year – now questions are being asked of his work at the club.
The Light Blues added several new faces over the summer, but many have failed to make an impact due to both form and a massive injury list.
Van Bronckhorst appeared to take a veiled dig at the ‘unique circumstances’ he worked under at Ibrox, with many feeling it was in reference – in part, at least – to transfer dealings.
Going forward, Wilson has insisted Beale has the final say on any incomings.
Cash for new transfers
There has been a lot of chat around Rangers’ potential January transfer business.
With several key players out with injury, the new boss has a job on their hands to get the squad ready to challenge Celtic in the second half of the season.
Supporters are likely to be looking for further clarity on exactly what funds will be available for the Beale next month.
Fox takeover bid
Kyle Fox, an American businesswoman, has claimed she has agreements in place to buy 25 per cent of Rangers and become the biggest shareholder at the club.
Light Blues fans are of course wary of an outside takeover after the events that transpired a decade ago, but Fox seems determined to get business done.
On a potential takeover, she said: “I have always been, and will continue to be, open and transparent with Rangers’ board, shareholders, and investors.
“I look forward to putting the lawsuit behind us and continuing to explore opportunities to bring value to the Rangers organisation, its loyal fans, investors, and other stakeholders through KRF Capital’s proposed acquisition of a significant ownership interest in the club.”
It’s been a big talking point among the Gers support and they will hope to get more information on her at the upcoming event.
Hummel court case
Rangers are being sued by Elite Sports Ltd, the company behind Hummel sportswear, for more than £9.5million in lost sales.
It’s a huge figure the club will need to pay and supporters will want to all the details surrounding the case.
It may be over a fortnight away but it seems viewers are keen to see McCoist and Champion confirmed well ahead of schedule – as it could influence which channel they watch the game on (the final will be shown on both ITV and the BBC).
One fan said: “If ITV are picking on form – as is the way with successful teams in the World Cup – then Jon Champion & Ally McCoist should start preparing for the final. Best commentary team by a distance.”
Another commented: “Champion and McCoist. Give them the final.”
Someone else said: “McCoist better get the final on ITV, ideally with Jon Champion as well. Such a good pairing.”
While a further fan replied: “@ITVSport Ally McCoist is trending in the UK. He’s superb. Book him in for the final!”
Another said: “Ally McCoist better be the co commentator for the final. Levels above the other drivel we get stuck with.”
A couple of fans aren’t holding out much hope though.
“Never gonna happen but would love to see McCoist get the commentary gig for the World Cup final. Would be fully merited. Easy the best one out the lot,” said one.
Another said: “If they put Champion and Ally McCoist on it, I’d watch the final on ITV. But they’re going to [Sam] Matterface it up, aren’t they?”
Along with poor Matterface, Lee Dixon and Jermain Jenas were compared unfavourably to McCoist on the mic.
This fan said: “If @ITV have Ally McCoist on co commentator for the final I will watch ITV. If its Dixon then it’s BBC for me, and the majority of the country I imagine, even if [Jermain] Jenas is doing it.”
That said, not all are set on McCoist’s sparring partner.
One wants one of Champions colleagues, Clive Tyldesley, as the lead commentator.
They said: “@ITVSport please announce Clive Tyldesley and Ally McCoist for the Final!”
Another asked: “I’d love to to hear the commentary dream team of Jonathan Pearce & Ally McCoist for the World Cup Final. Make it happen @ITV and @BBCSport.”
Shakira is relocating to Miami with their sons Sasha, seven, and Milan, nine, as part of the agreement.
She is expected to make the move early next year, although she will have to return to Barcelona for her as-yet undated £12million tax fraud trial.
The mum-of-two has been charged with six counts of tax fraud and has been warned she could be hit with an eight-year prison sentence if found guilty.
Late last month she delivered a stinging attack on tax authorities in Spain, claiming she was being persecuted and accusing the Spanish Treasury of using “unacceptable methods to damage her reputation and force her to come to a settlement agreement.”
She also insisted she had no intention of making any deals and would go to trial.
