How well would swordsman work in modern infantry?


Modern infantry is mostly rifleman, with other using eg granade launchers, sub machine guns and RPG. Swordsman seem to be outdated, but in WW2 China, due to lack of ammo swordsman make up 2/3/ of some legion's infantry, 70s Afghan Soviet war, swords man cavalry that ride horse was really effective, WW2 Russia cavalry that use swordsman and ride horses won the battle that turn the tied of the war, of course, using swordsman is risky and is desperate measure in modern warfare. But, how swordsman can be use in 21st century war or it got no chance? (This photo is WW2 China army swordsman platoon)
