Xherdan Shaqiri would happily trade personal plaudits for Premier League points after bringing his rich vein of goalscoring form into the new season.
The Stoke schemer launched his campaign with a stunning free-kick to snatch a 1-1 draw at promoted Middlesbrough just weeks after lighting up the Euro 2016 finals with an acrobatic overhead strike for Switzerland against Poland.
Shaqiri told the club's website: "For me, it is more important to help the team. Of course it's always nice to score for a player. But I feel fit, I feel very good and that's more important so I can help the team more.
"We are looking forward to the next games - we have a lot of games to play. It's a long season. I am pleased to help my team, really happy to help the team to this point. It was important for the first game.
"We'll take this point. Of course, we want to win every game, but a draw is a good start and we will keep going and look forward to the next games."
